Jazz has truly become a global phenomenon. International Jazz Day, celebrated every year on April 30th, recognizes the international presence of jazz as well as the multi-cultural influence of jazz all over the world. Here, in Buffalo, we’ll help celebrate with the JazzBuffalo 5th Annual International Jazz Day Celebration. Be sure to hear a message from Herbie Hancock just below.
When you look at the jazz stars about to come through Buffalo this spring, it is nothing short of astonishing! Larger cities and jazz meccas do not even get close to the level we are about to experience. A result of the JazzBuffalo Community coming together to create a cultural impact that is putting Buffalo on the map as a desired destination.
