“I believe that jazz is the most personal form of musical expression, and as such expresses the full range of emotions we all experience. Jazz was born in America as an expression of the experiences and emotions blacks in the South. Because of its emotional range, authenticity, and humanity, it quickly evolved and spread throughout the US, Europe, and the rest of the world. Jazz is a language, and like literature, there is a broad range of jazz, some that’s joyful, and some that’s deep, meaningful, and emotionally nurturing. The full spectrum of jazz is what we present at the Jazz Society Café, the performance venue of The Jazz Society of Ecuador located in Cuenca, Ecuador. Presenting jazz is our effort to unite us all in our common desire for peace and humanity.
