Hosted in a different city every year, International Jazz Day is a day declared by the United Nations Scientific and Cultural Organisation to highlight jazz and its diplomatic role of uniting people from all corners of the globe through music.

Bird’s Basement, Melbourne’s Jazz Corner, is hosting ‘Wilbur Wilde’s Blowout Band’ and punters can expect a seriously high standard of playing from Wilbur (tenor sax) and his stellar band - with Eugene Ball (trumpet), Sam Keevers (piano), Philip Rex (bass) and Niko Schauble (drums).


The idea of UNESCO goodwill Ambassador and absolute Jazz icon, Herbie Hancock, International Jazz Day this year is blasts off this year in Melbourne with the 2019 All-Star Global Concert in Hamer Hall.
