How I Fell in Love with Jazz Video Contest
How did you fall in love with Jazz?

Due November 21st, 2020 - Just a few months ago, before the COVID pandemic, no one would have imagined a time when musicians couldn’t play together, when there were no gigs, and when playing for live audiences was not possible. We all need music in our lives—COVID or NO COVID. Connecting through music is more important now than ever. To show support to artists during these times when live performance is on hold they are sponsoring the How I Fell in Love with Jazz contest.

Music has the incredible power to move us, to inspire us, to stir us up, and to bring us joy, peace and tranquility. Music touches the hearts and souls of millions, connects us and brings us together. The unifying power of music and its healing power can bring hope and light to the world.

Jazz music occupies a very special place in the universe. It is an international art form. It is a language and a platform for personal expression, creativity and spontaneity. Jazz is created “in the moment” and yet, it remains timeless. The range of Jazz idioms and styles is vast, yet its interpretation creates a unique and extremely personal connection between artists and listeners, unlike that of any other form of artistic expression. Jazz transcends cultures and borders. It is universal and provides a common bond to bring disparate peoples closer together. We wanted to find a way to share the joy of Jazz with each other.

​How did you fall in love with Jazz?
