(BPRW) 2020 Virtual Monterey Jazz Festival

(Black PR Wire) This year’s celebration will be held virtually.  This incredible lineup features exclusive new and previously unreleased archival performances from the Monterey Jazz Festival! Unique and memorable jazz moments will be across the three days.

This year, MJF recognizes the need to shine a spotlight not only on what has been happening with the music, but even more importantly with the Black community which is so integral to jazz and the Festival.
