The freedom that jazz music engenders can play an important role in promoting tolerance around the world.

That's according to drummer, Marko Djordjevic, who was performing at the United Nations on International Jazz Day.

Daniel Dickinson asked him why it is important to have a day dedicated to jazz.

The report begins with the music of John Coltrane played by Mr Djordjevic and saxophonist, Tivon Pennicott.
