We are beginning to see some evidence that social distancing and staying at home is beginning to have a positive effect. As painful as it may be for all of us, it is a commitment that takes perseverance. Certainly not easy! Think of others – your loved ones, families, and friends we are doing this for – to protect ourselves and them.
Stay faithful! Happy Passover! Happy Easter! Both represent the hope of renewal and coming out of difficult times.
While staying at home, take the time to appreciate the music of jazz. It is Jazz Appreciation Month this April and a perfect time to listen, read about, and support the music of jazz. Read the article below about the focus on Women in Jazz. Be sure to check out the Upcoming Events section of JazzBuffalo. We continue to list live streaming to enjoy from New York and elsewhere as we find out about them.
Watch The DUO+ perform duo jazz via live stream (Facebook Live) right here on JazzBuffalo. The first Live Stream was so well received, we’re bringing it back with better sound every Thursday until – we don’t know!! We will post the link shortly before the start of the live performance on Facebook and JazzBuffalo. You can also support Donny and Ellen of the Duo+ via these links to donate any small amount you can to their efforts. Support them…
