Today is International Jazz Day.
Teddy likes cool jazz which arose during the second world war. During this time, jazz musicians from California moved to New York and mixed their music style with the bebop musicians. The smooth sound of saxophonist Lester Young also influenced the new combo sound which became cool jazz. The term "cool" started being applied to this music in 1953. Teddy was adopted around that time and he is a cool teddy bear.
