April is Jazz Appreciation Month!

If you are unfamiliar with Freegal, it is a service provided through the DC Public Library that allows you to download three mp3s per week, which are then yours to keep forever — they do not need to be returned and they will never expire.

April is Jazz Appreciation Month, so we are featuring albums recorded at New York City's legendary Birdland Jazz Club.  We have highlighted some great selections here, but you can find more by logging into Freegal with your DC Public Library card and searching for these and other legendary jazz recordings.
