Celebrating Black History Month

Updated: Feb 4, 2019

Acknowledging the fact that Jazz originated in the African American community of this country and is performed & revered worldwide, it is especially fitting to present this music during Black History Month whenever & wherever the opportunity arises.

I am offering original music to pay tribute to some of the influential leaders in the Black community, including Jazz musicians who helped create an internationally cherished and respected art form. These great men and women deserve to be recognized!
