It's Official! The City Of Philadelphia Appreciates Jazz
All across the country, April is Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM). In Philadelphia, JAM's month-long series of concerts, workshops, and events - including the Center City Jazz Festival - culminates on April 30th, which is Jazz Appreciation Day. WRTI’s Meridee Duddleston was at City Hall on April 3rd as Mayor Nutter, officials from the City Representative’s office, jazz great Benny Golson, and The Philadelphia Jazz Project’s founder Homer Jackson were joined by local jazz lovers and promoters to spread the word about JAM.
