Philadelphia has a rich history in Jazz music with artists such as Ethel Waters, John Coltrane, Billie Holiday, Joe Venuti, Eddie Lang, Stan Getz, Bessie Smith, the Heath Brothers, Dizzie Gillespie, Sun Ra, Charlie Parker, McCoy Tyner, and Grover Washington Jr.

Jazz Appreciation Month's (or JAM) intention is to stimulate the current jazz scene and encourage people of all ages to participate in jazz by studying the genre, attending concerts, listening to jazz on radio and recordings, reading books on the topic and supporting institutional jazz programs. This is according to The Smithsonian National Museum of American History which starting JAM in 2002.
