All That Jazz

If your music collection is anything like mine, it could benefit from the addition of little more cool jazz (don’t worry, this doesn’t involve Kenny G) and a little less 80s pop. Nordstrom – with the help of a few musical legends - has just what you need.

In celebration of February’s Black History month, Nordstrom has put together a cool new compilation CD entitled Big Swing: African-American Legends of the Big Band Era. It’s got all the great swing performers of decades past including Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday.

The CD – which retails for $18.95 – will be available on February 1 at all Nordstrom stores in the U.S. and online at www.nordstrom.com/blackhistorymonth.

Proceeds from the sale of Big Swing will be donated to the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater (AAADT), an acclaimed modern dance company based in New York that inspires, entertains and educates through performances, training and educational programs across the country and around the globe.
