Photos from International Jazz Day in Osaka, Japan

Highlights of events in the host city of the 3rd IJD

The third annual International Jazz Day took place on April 30 in all 196 countries around the world–and even in Antarctica! This year, Osaka, Japan, served as the host city. An all-star concert followed other events including lectures, master classes and more, held at the Osaka School of Music. Here are photos from those events, courtesy of Getty Images for Thelonious Monk, as well as photos from the press conference held earlier that day, those taken by JazzTimes’ Jeff Tamarkin.
