Legendary Item Added To ‘The Soul of Jazz: The American Adventure’ Exhibit at EPCOT
If you’ve been following along with MickeyBlog you’ll know that a brand new exhibition opened up at the American Adventure pavilion in EPCOT last week that celebrates Jazz music with a little help from Joe Gardner, the piano-playing protagonist from Pixar’s Soul. The exhibition takes guests through the importance of jazz music and features actual instruments played by some of the biggest forces in the history of jazz.
We are pleased to announce that another item has been added to this stunning collection.
Joining the collection is a very special saxophone from jazz musician Charlie Parker!
This stunning item was added to the exhibit from the American Jazz Museum in Kansas City.
To mark the occasion, Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas and the museum’s Executive Director Rashida Philips helped this important item reach its destination!
It was all smiles and soul at EPCOT this morning as we welcomed the arrival of a very special saxophone from jazz…
If you’ll be at EPCOT in the weeks ahead be sure to be-bop over to the pavilion to check out the incredible items on display here!
Other highlights of the collection include:
- Jazz legend Louis Armstrong’s Selmer trumpet
- “Jazz Jubilee” sheet music, handwritten by Jelly Roll Morton, one of the genre’s original performers and composers
- “Skin Deep” percussion sheet music of Duke Ellington drummer Louie Bellson
