Listening to jazz music has potential benefits for your health as varied as the genre itself. The innovative riffs, cool tones and complex rhythms can bring natural relief for mind & body. Listening to Jazz can actually have an effect on the type of brain waves you produce – which can be stimulating or relaxing. Since stress is the root of many health problems, the relaxing effect of jazz music can have incredible healing influence. It physically changes your body by lowering your heart and respiratory rate. Fun Fact: A study conducted by Dorothy Retallack in 1973 played music to plants for two weeks. Plants “listening” to classical and jazz music physically leaned 15 to 20 degrees toward the radio while plants “listening” to rock music grew away from the radio, became sick, and died.
There will be FREE live jazz music from noon-7 p.m. on two downtown stages: Local & Regional Stage at Park Central East and Collegiate Stage at Park Central Square. Headliner Ramsey Lewis and Urban Knights will appear at the Gillioz at 8 p.m. Get your tickets from the Gillioz Theatre box office.
This FREE event is a celebration of culture, diversity and, of course, great music.
