Searching For Jazz City - The Case for a Jazz Repatriation Movement

By Published: January 30, 2003
So now I signal a call to arms for all citizens, jazz historians, fans, educators, business people, writers and musicians. Let's stop analyzing and complaining about the loss of our music. Let's keep sharing it with the world. But let us also re-establish America as its true home. Let's create a Jazz Repatriation movement. Start the search for Jazz City. A thriving Jazz City would show the world that this country has pride in its artistic contributions to mankind and is not willing to abandon them.

America's jazz culture is a valuable and renewable resource. Let's renew it. When you really think about that, it's the patriotic thing to do.
