(Black PR Wire) – Consider this year’s Monterey Jazz Festival.

Unique and memorable jazz moments across three days.

The lineup includes exclusive new and previously unreleased archival performances from the festival.

And, the celebration will be held virtually, via YouTube.

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.

One hundred percent of online contributions from each day of the virtual festival will be donated to the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and to jazz artists featured at the festival.
