International Jazz Day

UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador, and one of everyone’s favorite jazz pianists, Herbie Hancock has declared April 30 to be International Jazz Day. As announced in the Huffington Post, “The official kick-off will be on April 27 with an all-day program at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris that will include master classes, roundtable discussions and improvisational workshops. An evening concert will feature Hancock, Dee Dee Bridgewater, South Africa’s Hugh Masekela and Brazil’s Tania Maria, among others.”

Jazz Boston will be coordinating its Jazz Week with these festivities.
