As April is Jazz Appreciation Month we’re making our #TuesdayTrivia all about Jazz.
#DidYouKnow that Count Basie’s bass player, Walter Page, was one of the men instrumental (the pun is not intended) in developing the modern four beat pulse that is strongly associated with Jazz?
As it’s #JAM we thought you might appreciate this #FridayFunny…
What’s the difference between a rock guitarist and a jazz guitarist?
The rocker plays 3 chords in front of 3,000 people whereas the jazz guitarist plays 3,000 chords in front of 3.
April is designated Jazz Appreciation Month.
Jazz Appreciation Month, or JAM as it is affectionately known, was created by the National Museum of American History in 2001 in order that the heritage and history of jazz be recognised and celebrated.
The intention of JAM is to encourage people of all ages to participate in jazz; whether that’s attending shows, listening to jazz, reading about it, or even studying the music.
However you choose to celebrate the wonder that is Jazz remember you’ve a whole month in which to participate.
