SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A uniquely American Musical event took place in downtown Springfield Thursday night. A jazz combo let loose with some free-association and free expression of modern music.
Jazz Lovers gathered in the lobby of One Financial Plaza Thursday night for the Springfield Jazz Roots Kickoff Party.
His honor, Mayor Domenic Sarno, was there to lend his support and love of Jazz to the event. Jazz has been referred to as “Thinking man’s music.”
This music form was born in New Orleans about 100 years ago.
