Jazz Birthdays

Today, we celebrate more jazz musicians who were born on this day. Perhaps one of the most celebrated is Duke Ellington. He was born on this day in D.C. in 1899. Read about his biography in the JassOdyssey series, Book one. Also born on this day were Big Jay McNelly and Toots Thielmans. Both musicians are also mentioned in the JassOdyssey series.

In Book three of the series, there is a character named Boots Billman. And like Toots, Boots also plays the harmonica. Read about him, as well as the other numerous characters in the JassOdyssey series. More will follow. Also, follow author J.A. Rollins and Never Die this summer as they appear in the area.
