Jazz Appreciation Month 2023

The Rich History of Jazz Music

Few genres of American music can claim to possess such a complex but free-flowing art as that which Jazz has contributed to the world.  Developed in the early 20th Century from African rhythmic roots, Jazz musicians blended together spiritual hymns, work songs, and the blues to create a distinct sound that defined a generation and beyond.

For Jazz Appreciation Month, we encourage you to explore these great titles!
