is curating and playing in the Roosevet Island International Jazz Day Celebration. Mr. Kurien reports:
Gallery RIVAA will host its second annual International Jazz Day Celebration - Jam Session on Sunday April 29th as part of the world wide celebration of International Jazz Day.

Last year was a tremendous success when on April 30th,2017 we celebrated, for the first time International Jazz Day on Roosevelt Island at Gallery RIVAA- the home of art (and now Jazz) on Roosevelt Island.

This was a true jam session format, and lineups kept rotating all evening.. We had about 15 musicians that came (representing the world ) and included folks whose origins included exotic international locations such as Detroit , Texas, Indiana, Astor Place NY, Argentina , France via italy , Brooklyn, Japan, Madagascar, the UK, the Russian Federation, India and more !

- Truly International ! and inspiring.

Jazz is international music that has no boundaries and has the power to bind us together, not divide. it speaks a universal language and to universal truths. There has been no war that has been fought over jazz (except over too many beers while arguing Ron Carter over Jaco, or post-bop vs swing!).
