Capital Jazz Festival Background
Located in the suburbs of Washington D.C.,
this world famous jazz fest has become one of the most anticipated summer events on the East Coast year after year. Since
jazz music was born in the South during the late 19th century, it has become one of the most beloved music genres not only
in America, but also all over the world. Legends like Miles Davis and Louis Armstrong helped spread jazz to all four corners
of the earth, its melodic and smooth sound resonating everywhere from small cafes in Spain to street corners in New Orleans.
Although music has progressed since the ever-soulful Jazz Age, this unique music has inspired new musical genres and has also
taken on new shapes itself, such as rock-infused jazz to smooth jazz. No matter what type of jazz music you love most, you
can certainly find it at the Capital Jazz Festival.
In addition to its impressive lineup of the world's best jazz musicians
as well as up and coming jazz artists, the Capital Jazz Fest hosts a variety of entertainment options. In between listening
to your favorite jazz artists, you can explore arts and crafts centers, indulge in the many delectable culinary treats strewn
throughout the festival grounds, and attend meet and greets where you can fawn over your favorite musicians. And don't even
think about turning in early, because the parties last well into the night, with the soulful and sultry jazz beats piercing
the air until the early morning. The Capital Jazz Fest in Columbia is one of the biggest jazz festivals in the world, and

you know that the saxophone wasn't used to create jazz music until the 1920s?
Although jazz was born in the late 19th
century, its most recognizable instrument wasn't added to the genre until the 1920s. The saxophone was originally recognized
as a Belgian instrument that was solely used in chambers and orchestral performances. Once America's 6 Brown Brothers incorporated
the brass instrument to their soulful jazz sound, it added that extra flavor that makes jazz so alluring. To this day, the
saxophone remains somewhat synonymous with jazz music, and you can hardly picture jazz without this unique instrument!
Imagine spending an entire weekend soaking up the sun, mingling with interesting people, and listening
