Jazz for Peace Concerts Continue in New York City!

On Sept. 25, 2002 Jazz Pianist and Vocalist Rick DellaRatta was invited to lead a band consisting of Israeli, Middle Eastern, European, Asian and American Jazz Musicians in a concert inside the United Nations for an International audience. Rick named this band "Jazz for Peace" and has continued these concerts at a venue on the upper west side called Jazz On The Park every Friday & Saturday.

Jazz For Peace -

I hear jazz for peace coming thru the trees, and in my heart it fills me like a celebration. I see the light, and I want to follow inspired by the past contributions of those who came before, and laid the groundwork for us to build on. In this universal language that is a gift for all mankind and when we speak it people are inspired by the creativity and artistry that stands for peace, and love, and humanity and intelligence, that leads to reaching potential that we have in our souls, so we can raise our total conscience and see that the gift of giving is our greatest privilege I hear jazz for peace

-Rick DellaRatta
