Photos from International Jazz Day Pre-Concert Dinner

Musicians and dignataries gather in Osaka, Japan to celebrate jazz

Today is International Jazz Day! Events are taking place in 195 countries celebrating and promoting our music. This year's host city for the main concert and events is Osaka, Japan. Last night a pre-concert dinner was held in Osaka's New Otani Hotel, where JT's Jeff Tamarkin was on hand and shot these pics. We'll have many more photos and extensive coverage of the events and concert in the days and weeks to come.
