Atlanta is a music city, with many venues where music is king. Atlanta Jazz Festival 2014 is set for this weekend, May 23-25, 2014. This is also the Memorial Day Weekend in the city. Atlanta will truly be hot Atlanta a place that you would want to be. The Atlanta Jazz Festival is noted as one of the largest free Jazz festivals in the country. The month of May is Jazz month in the city in the forest, 31 days of Jazz. The organizers have been bringing free Jazz to Atlantans since 1977. Atlantans, visitors and tourist look forward to this annual event.

The free Jazz will be at Piedmont Park. Atlanta is a city that never sleeps and too busy to hate. The mission of the Atlanta Jazz Festival is to expose as well as entertain. The audience, like the city is very diverse. Jazz is traditional music.

Everyone loves the sweet sound of Jazz. Referred to as ‘Classical American music,’ in North America, Jazz is one of the oldest and most celebrated genres. For many old school African-Americans, when Jazz is mentioned, the names of Miles Davis and Billie Holiday come to mind, just to name a few of the many Jazz legends. Jazz music is sound, sweet and music you can relax to. For those who like to shake and move, Jazz music can entertain you as well. The Jazz music is none stop, all weekend.
