IJD 2017 is taking place in South Carolina as a consolidated effort by the Skipp Pearson Jazz Foundation (the Foundation) and a host of Lead Partners in support of the United Nations Educational Scientific Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The Foundation was asked to take the lead and to organize a project in support of the worldwide celebration scheduled to take place in over one hundred and ninety (190) countries around the world.

From Greenville to Charleston, Jazz Lovers will be able to enjoy some of the best live jazz music anywhere.
IJD 2017 in South Carolina on Saturday April 29th will begin with the sounds of Bebop in the City of CHeraw offering a salute to South Carolina’s first ambassador of Jazz, Dizzy Gillespie. Throughout the weekend Jazz Artists, Lead Partners, and Municipalities across the State will help share seventy years of live Jazz Music performances.
