Celebrate Jazz Appreciation Month


For more than a year, we have been pleased to host a number of world-renowned jazz artists through our Jazz with Pepper series. So far, we have had master classes with trumpeter Roger Ingram, guitarist Pat Martino, saxophonist David Liebman, and the Army Brass Quintet. These classes have been a huge hit so far, and we are happy to say that we have even more jazz favorites lined up for the coming months.

This year we have confirmed interviews with Arturo Sandoval, Christian McBride, Rubén Alvarez, and Eddie Palmieri, and we hope to bring you many more in the future.

We started Jazz with Pepper in the hope of connecting our customers with some of the biggest names in jazz today. In bringing these icons together with jazz lovers young and old, we aim to help cultivate an appreciation for the first purely American art form. The sessions have been successful beyond our imagination and we are thrilled at the response from both jazz musicians and jazz lovers alike.

Each visit has generated  a number of video clips for customers around the country to enjoy. In honor of April being Jazz Appreciation Month, we are sharing some of the best moments from our Jazz with Pepper sessions. Please enjoy these clips and keep an eye out for the next Jazz with Pepper session.
