Jazz from A to Z is a program of Mesa Arts Center and Arizona State University’s School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies in partnership with Jazz at Lincoln Center. Jazz from A to Z creates a meaningful connection to one of America’s greatest cultural resources- jazz.
If 'jazz' means anything at all , which is questionable, it means the same thing it meant to musicians fifty years ago- freedom of expression. I used to have a definition, but I don't think I have one anymore, unless it is that it is a music with an African foundation which came out of an american environment. - Duke Ellington
