Preview: International Jazz Day (April 30)

Tomorrow (Friday) is International Jazz Day. Hundreds, if not thousands, of events will be taking place across the globe. In an earlier post BSH's Editor-in-Chief previewed Newcastle Jazz Co-op's contribution to the annual shindig, a live stream concert co-promotion with Jazz North East featuring the Matt Carmichael Quartet. 

The Louis Armstrong House Museum's participation takes the form of a discussion (with videos and live music) from noon EST (5:00pm BST). Whether by accident or design, Cyrille Aimée's new duo album launch gig with guitarist Michaël Valeanu live streaming from Mezzrow, NYC (11:00pm BST) on International Jazz Day is certain to pull in a few more punters. Similarly, the BBC is to repeat Oliver Murray's documentary Ronnie's: Ronnie Scott and His Famous Jazz Club at 10:00pm (BBC 4), followed by 'another chance to see' Jazz 625: for One Night Only featuring programme highlights spanning 1964 to 1966.
