Tuesday TuNesday!

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. On The Importance Of Jazz

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on the importance of Jazz:

"Jazz speaks for life. The Blues tell the story of life's difficulties,
and if you think for a moment, you will realize that they take the
hardest realities of life and put them into music, only to come out
with some new hope or sense of triumph.This is triumphant music."
