Devlin’s in Brighton
The global community of jazz fans celebrated International Jazz Day on April 20, 2016, by performing live concerts, bringing music to the classrooms and singing the praises of this distinctly American art form that is now shared around the globe.
Massachusetts has a vibrant, year-round jazz scene that attracts musicians from across the globe, including Central and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Many come here to study or teach at schools like the Berklee College of Music, New England Conservatory, and UMass/Amherst and many others. See a list of Massachusetts colleges offering jazz courses.
JazzBoston held its JazzWeek from April 22-May 1 this year leading up to the International Jazz Day celebrations. 
MassJazz offers live jazz concerts throughout the year, as well as information on jazz radio programs, organizations, and promoters.
Here is a schedule of Jazz and Blues festivals in Massachusetts in 2016.
