Savannah and "All that Jazz!"
When anyone thinks of the music scene of the Southern states, there are a few genres that come to mind. Blues, folk, country… And of course, America’s infectious and indigenous musical art form, jazz! The very first Jazz Festival in Savannah was in October 1, 1983 in Grayson Stadium. The creators of the event, who were then students of a jazz appreciation class taught by Ben Tucker at Savannah State University, also created The Coastal Jazz Association.
