April is Jazz Appreciation Month!

In 2014, the National Museum of American History will celebrate Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM) with the theme Jazz Alchemy: A Love Supreme, to pay tribute to John Coltrane and the 50th anniversary of his composition “A Love Supreme.”

A specially created image of Coltrane by artist Joseph Holston graces this year’s JAM poster.
