April 2017

Welcome back one and all.

Every month, I like to give something away. Typically, it will be an item that has been out of circulation for a while, and more often than not, it is an item that was created, never used and archived. Sometimes I just like to create something unique for all of you, simply for the joy of it.

This month's poster is the official release of our media for our International #jazzday 2017 show this year entitled Soul Jazz: An Overview.

A three-hour program, broken into hour-long segments, available for FREE download or FREE streaming anytime, that focuses on the artists and music that returned Jazz music to its home, which was the streets it arose from. This is completely commercial-free, will feature information about each artist and cover the period from the mid-1950’s through it’s 1960’s heydey and finishing up in the latter half of the 1970’s.

International Jazz Day 2017 is a program of UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. Visit them online at or find them online using the hashtag #jazzday

Part of our ongoing weekly music series “What You’re Not Listening To.” A special thank you to Coral Mallow for critical design feedback. As always, thank you Travis, Ron and Gypsy. Dedicated to Art Laboe. 

This poster can be printed at your local copy shop for about $1.50 USD. Click on the image to open or download the PDF file. Share and enjoy. 

Love to you all.
