When it comes to the essential part of entertainment history, people will often mention New York, New Orleans, Los Angeles, or even far off places like the United Kingdom, Canada, or even Jamaica.

What is missing from the conversation is the contributions of Baltimore, Maryland and what Baltimore has contributed to the musical landscape, especially in the terms of JAZZ.

Before there was CLUB or HIP-HOP, there was this thing called Jazz, the heartbeat to every form of musical and entertainment form in the area:

James Hubert Blake (February 7, 1887– February 12, 1983), Eleanora Fagan (April 7, 1915 – July 17, 1959),Cabell Calloway III (December 25, 1907 – November 18, 1994, and William Henry "Chick" Webb(February 10, 1905– June 16, 1939).

Yet the jazz community continues to thrive with the likes of John Lamkin, Kevin Jackson, and Craig Alston.

The Baltimore Jazz Festival looks to continue with the tradition by bridging the old and the new styles of jazz and expanding the reach of the art of jazz by connecting with the vibrant Baltimore community and reaching out to the DMV artists to take part in this venture to showcase a greater sound of the music and talent.
