By spotlighting Jazz or Jass music in a new light as a young and vibrant healthy musical genre, and not one that is hanging on by life support it puts Jazz in a total new and invigorating light. The virtual race will not only promote the celebration of Jazz, but it will also promote the good work that The Jazzsippers Consortium does daily. Which helps to promote Jazz and encourage more people of all ages to appreciate Jazz and to take part in it, by helping in supporting Jazz based initiatives in promoting Jazz Appreciation; Jazz Awareness; and Jazz Advocacy. The Jazzsippers Consortium Group is laser focus on brining Jazz to the forefront and allowing Jazzsippers to work collectively in these endeavors.

A spokesman for The Jazzsippers said: “The Jazz Appreciation Month is a time for celebrating the Success and Importance of Jazz, but it is also to inform non-members, and members of their community about the amazing work they do, and can continually do collectively as Jazzsippers to Promote, Jazz Appreciation; Jazz Awareness; and Jazz Advocacy.” And, by making it an all-inclusive event, it provides the greatest possibility of coming together to meet on common ground issues, such as youth-based initiatives, entrepreneurial opportunities within the Jazz industry, and a slew of other, common ground initiatives. And to help in the development of strategic alliances that can be forged with non-members of the community worldwide.

The fun event is set to unite all Jazz lovers all over the world. There has never been a big Jazz event organized other than this virtual race. With people walking, running, and riding, they can all show their appreciation for the Jazz music of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

It is important to promote Jazz and celebrate the likes of Miles Davis, Chet Baker, Herbie Hancock, and Sonny Rollins, as well as the big stars of today and the new breed of Jazz stars of tomorrow. By promoting Jazz, it allows more people to appreciate Jazz, especially the young who will help keep the appreciation of Jazz for future generations. Between 2018 and 2019 Spotify told the Guardian that about 40% of jazz listening on the streaming website is done by people under 30, with the percentage holding steadily since 2014. This shows a great underlining of interest in Jazz by our youth. As an Industry, Jazz has to find ways to harvest this underlining interest.
