Hello everyone,

To celebrate International Jazz Day and unite jazz fans around the world we have partnered with the IJD ahead of the official All-Star Global concert led by the legendary Herbie Hancock, which will happened later in Melbourne, Australia.

In 2011, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) introduced International Jazz Day 2011 to raise awareness of jazz and its role of uniting people in all corners of the globe.

As the official music partner for International Jazz Day, we created a special line-up playlist featuring the artists performing at the All-Star Global Concert. This includes the likes of jazz pianist and composer Herbie Hancock, jazz singer Dee Dee Bridgewater, jazz trumpeter Til Brönner, and jazz singer Kurt Elling. The playlist covers of several of our Jazz playlists have also been taken over with images of the icons performing at the concert and co-branded with the charity’s official logo.

As the centerpiece of International Jazz Day’s global programming each year, the All-Star Global Concert inspires audiences worldwide with never-before-seen, cross-cultural musical collaborations. Tributes encompass nearly every era of recorded jazz and highlight the diverse influences that draw listeners of all backgrounds to this special music. Since 2012, the Global Concert has brought together dozens of artists from around the globe to spread the word about jazz and its positive message.

Our official streaming data also shows the world’s most streamed Jazz musicians and tracks in the last year. Michael Bublé took the top spot as the most streamed Jazz artist, while “Feeling Good,” by Nina Simone was the top streamed track.

Yannick Fage, our Global Jazz and Classical Music Editor commented: “Jazz is one of the most important genres in music that has also influenced across multiple genres such as pop, rock and hip-hop. We have dedicated jazz fans from all over the world who love classical to modern jazz and we are proud to support International Jazz Day with our special playlist featuring the All-Star Global Concert.”
