jazzahead! 2017 - American Jazz Industry Significance
(Published: March 03, 2017)

jazzahead! 2017
April 27-30
U.S. Jazz Industry

Jazz was born in America. This true American art form has been embraced with open arms by our brothers and sisters in Europe, Japan and around the world! The music has grown, evolved and developed a great presence in our lives. Jazzahead! 2017 held April 27-30 in Bremen, Germany, spearheads the movement forward, following a successful showing last year. It is crucial for the U.S. Jazz industry to fully support jazzahead! with vigor at the Umbrella Stand USA!

Jeff Levenson is a highly respected voice in the ongoing development of this healing music. Levenson wears many hats including: Trustee, The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences and Consultant, North American Representative, jazzhead!

"Jazzahead is the one place where members of the world-wide jazz community can convene for the purpose of doing business," he explains."It has become a magnet for all those who work in the industry - artists, managers, agents, presenters, labels, and members of the music ecosystem. What's most rewarding is that Europe has an elastic view of the genre - meaning, hybrid music colored or informed by world elements and jazz are celebrated and represented fully. Jazzahead has become a leading voice in the drive to embrace this spirit of inclusion."

On the importance of America's support of jazzahead!, Levenson says, "As the jazz industry updates itself, driven in the main by technological innovation, jazzahead! remains a steadying destination where U.S. jazz gatekeepers can find new and alternative opportunities for growth. The idea of 'future' is a constant. Whereas the U.S. wrestles with galvanizing the industry's various interests, Jazzahead brings them together as interdependent entities dedicated to creating, presenting and consuming the art. Jazzahead! leads the way in artist and audience development."
