Where at one time can you find nearly 8,000 jazz performers, educators, journalists, photographers, producers, promoters, students and serious fans outside of the world’s largest jazz festivals? At the International Association of Jazz Educators’ 34th Annual Conference! The 2007 event will be held on the same site as the 2006 conference, right in the heart of midtown Manhattan at the New York Hilton/Sheraton New York, January 10-13. Over 200 concerts, panels and workshops are scheduled.

The world’s largest conference in the name of jazz draws individuals and ensembles from 45 nations for four days of performances, clinics, demonstrations, panel discussions, artist and industry exhibits, research presentations, award ceremonies, interviews, and informal networking. And that’s just what takes place within the convention centers. Outside of the hotels, area jazz clubs typically schedule special shows, taking advantage of the surge of jazz-bent tourists and the congregation of the world’s top artists. Notes IAJE Executive Director Bill McFarlin, “The IAJE Conference always takes on a special energy when we meet in New York. It’s exciting to see the city, already credited as the epicenter of the jazz universe, explode with thousands of jazz professionals and educators, many of whom can be found patronizing New York’s jazz clubs and live music venues throughout the week.”

2nd Annual Duke Ellington Jazz Festival October 4-8 PDF Print
Written by Ronaldo Oregano   
Saturday, 30 September 2006
ImageThe 2nd annual Duke Ellington Jazz Festival will be held October 4-8th. Many of the shows are FREE including the capstone of the festival on Saturday, October 7th, when heavyweight artists Poncho Sanchez; Dr. John; Roy Hargrove; John Scofield, performing the music of Ray Charles, with special guest Mavis Staples; and Nasar Abadey & SuperNova will play on The National Mall starting at noon.

Charles Fishman, Dizzy Gillespie's former personal manager and producer, has lived in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC, for 21 years. Throughout his time in the city, he wondered why Washington was the only major capital city in the Western world without a jazz festival. "I thought it was a shame since jazz was invented in this country, and DC was the birthplace, musical training ground and home of the legendary Duke Ellington".

On September 28, 2005, with the support of the Government of the District of Columbia, Congressional resolution HR501 and numerous national and local sponsors, the Duke Ellington Jazz Festival debuted in honor of one of the 20th century's most celebrated musical geniuses.

Like the inaugural festival, this year's event presents major artists from around the country, from around the world and also introduces emerging artists. In addition to the grand free jazz showcase on The National Mall, prominent featured locations for festival events include the Lincoln Theatre, The Kennedy Center, the Library of Congress, National Gallery of Art and neighborhood spots like the U Street Corridor's Busboys & Poets, the historic Bohemian Caverns and Twins Jazz Club.
