Jazz for Peace

“Uniting people through the artform of Jazz”

  Jazz For Peace featuring Rick DellaRatta Fast Facts:

  *Rick DellaRatta and Jazz For Peace performed at the United Nations in New York on September 25, 2002. He led a band consisting Israeli, Middle Eastern, European, Asian and American musicians in concert for an international audience in what is now considered one of the most significant cultural events of our time.


*Over the past year, Jazz For Peace has played over 75 benefit concerts across many of New York's finest jazz venues for numerous nonprofit organizations in need, expansion series concerts across the US,  and received support, praise and contributions from John McCain to Denis Kucinich and many, many others.

*The Jazz For Peace mission is to continue the benefit concert series; to expand its performances to other cities, states and countries; to bring jazz back into the schools and expose Americans to one of its greatest, yet often overlooked art forms; and to donate musical instruments to underprivileged children and schools.

*Rick DellaRatta’s new CD, Jazz For Peace, has just been released. Half of the proceeds go toward musical instruments for underprivileged children. It features such jazz greats as Eddie Gomez, Lenny White, Paquito D'Rivera and the London Symphony Orchestra.

*Rick DellaRatta is an international jazz pianist, vocalist and composer, who has won numerous awards through his talent. Most recently, he has been honored in Jazz Singers, a book by Scott Yanow, as one of the 500 greatest jazz vocalists of all-time.
