What is Juneteeth Jazz
Juneteenth is a landmark in history, a celebration of freedom and the end of enslavement in America. Juneteenth jazz is dedicated to the preservation of the unique aesthetic expression of freedom through jazz, in the spiritual essence of the people whose lives continue to be the creative catalyst of the roots of all American music. Juneteeth jazz is “dedicated to the innovators of this great music of the economic, cultural and educational development of the historic community that produced Americas most intellectually sophisticated musical expression of freedom for all the world to enjoy.”
