When & Where
Be Mo Jazz
The Be Mo Jazz project, organized by CA-FAM III, Inc., is an effort to honor the history, celebrate the presence and ensure the future of jazz music and culture. Baltimore is a perfect city to create such a project because of its rich history of celebrating indigenous music traditions. And the Mid-Atlantic region [PA, DE, MD, DC, VA, NC] is overflowing with musical talent to be both showcased and developed.
