Jazz, often hailed as "America’s classical music," has roots that run deep in the cultural fabric of the United States. Originating in New Orleans at the turn of the 20th century, jazz blends elements of ragtime and blues to create a genre that is uniquely American. What’s more, some of the most iconic figures in jazz history were also Freemasons.
Duke Ellington was a pioneering jazz musician and composer whose impact on the genre continues to be felt today. Nat King Cole, a virtuoso pianist and band leader, emerged from the swing era to leave an indelible mark on the world of music. Count Basie, known as "The King of Swing," dazzled audiences with his exceptional talent as a pianist and bandleader.
But beyond their musical contributions, these legends were also members of the Freemasons, a fraternal organization with a rich history of supporting the arts and charitable causes. By attending “A Jazz Triple Bill,” you not only pay homage to these iconic musicians but also contribute to the nurturing of young talent, in music and in dance, and the promotion of the arts on St. Maarten.
