About Jazz for Peace:
Rick DellaRatta and Jazz for Peace performed at the United Nations in New York on September 25, 2002. He led a band consisting of 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!” This U.N. Concert has led to a benefit concert series that has gone on to raise funds, publicity and awareness for over 400 non-profit organizations as well as an Educational Program to bring jazz back into the schools and donate musical instruments to underprivileged children.

Over the past year Jazz for Peace has garnered support and praise from distinguished Americans such as Senator John McCain, Congressman Dennis Kucinich, activist Noam Chomsky, NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and many more along with music lovers and humanitarians worldwide of all ages and nationalities!

Jazz For Peace reaches out to individuals and organizations on both sides of conflicting issues, believing that if we as a species embrace qualities such as creativity, artistry, intellectuality, humanity, individuality, etc. we will all have a better chance at avoiding the behavior that leads to destruction.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Former opening Act and Emcee for Dizzy Gillespie Rick DellaRatta and Jazz for Peace to Perform a Special Jazz at Christmastime Benefit in Atlanta for KACO, INC

Atlanta, GA– On Friday, December 12, 2008 at 6:00 PM, New York-based and internationally acclaimed jazz pianist, vocalist and composer Rick DellaRatta, will perform a special Benefit Concert to raise funds for KACO, INC. The benefit will take place at The Noon Day Baptist Church located at 4121 Canton Road in Marietta, GA. This event is part of an extensive world tour for Jazz for Peace. Tickets are $35.00 and there are a limited number of discount tickets available. To purchase advance tickets online please visit www.jazzforpeace.org .

The Kenyan Americans Community Organization (KACO) began in summer 2007 when a group of Diaspora Kenyans got together and brainstormed and brought to reality the idea of forming an organization that would be able to address issues related with: community welfare; improvement of their collective economic conditions; and charitable commitment to improve the quality of lives of communities in Kenya. The composition of the participants included, professionals, business people, students, church pastors, and retirees. The main catalyst for KACO actualization was the general consensus among the participants that we as Diaspora Kenyans could collectively do more to assist the poor communities in Kenya and alleviate their poverty condition. For more information please visit www.kacoinc.org.

In addition a new book by Scott Yanow was just released listing Rick as one of the “Top Jazz Singers of All Time”. Below please find some recent fast facts:
