In recognition of Jazz Appreciation Month in April, the Northampton Jazz Festival will present a virtual jazz series, “Up Jumped Spring” each Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
The series is a collaboration between the Northampton Jazz Festival, Northampton Open Media and The Parlor Room and will produce four, hour-long jazz concerts over the month. Northampton Open Media will record the jazz performances of local and regional musicians at the Parlor Room in Northampton and will then stream them free of charge over Facebook, YouTube, Twitch, and Northampton Community Access Channel 12 each Tuesday.
“One of the goals of this organization is to support local and regional musicians. The pandemic has cast a dark shadow over jazz musicians’ ability to play for hire,” Northampton Jazz Festival President Ruth Griggs said. “The jazz festival is in a perfect position to help mitigate that through its online jazz series.”
