International Jazz Day in Istanbul...April 30, 2013!

It's a great day for Jazz around the globe as the 2nd International Jazz Day is held. This year, it is most fitting that the great people of Turkey host the day in Istanbul...as this connection of Turkey, America and of course the Ertegun Brothers make so much of it so very possible.


UNESCO Ambassador for Intercultural Dialogue and Chairman of the Thelonius Monk Institute of Jazz, Herbie Hancock, co-Chair of the day, shown here with Ahmet's House Founder Tony Gallucci
 
To Ambassador Tan, and all our good friends at the Turkish Embassy in Washington, DC, we send our best hopes and blessings for a beautiful day.
