downloads, a definite plus.

The music is universal, i.e., major product companies. Cars, Clothing,
Alcoholic Beverages, all use jazz to market and sell.
Trend is for crossover, or blend of different jazz styles and variations.
Latin, R&B, pop, soft rock, and
popular music, all cross into jazz and vice versa.
The music is very adaptable.

Berlin, Tokyo are also popular.In the U.S. the JVC Jazz Festival in New York, the Newport Jazz Festival in R.I., and the Heritage Festival in New Orleans have been well attended.
