There is no denying that Jazz is one of the most important musical genres of all time. If you consider yourself to be a fan, there’s no better way to whet your appetite for jazz than to attend a festival – specifically a jazz festival. It’s a good thing that there is no shortage of jazz festivals that happen all over the country. Although some are day or weekend-long events, many of these festivals can span up to 10 days. There are even late-night jam sessions and some meet and greet. Learn more about my love for jazz plus any other upcoming jazz festivals with the following website.
