London-based saxophonist/bandleader/composer Ingrid Laubrock has been awarded a Fellowship in Jazz Composition by Britain's prestigious independent arts funding body The Arts Foundation.

The Arts Foundation awards five Fellowships each year over five different art forms.

Each Fellowship is worth about $18,000.

Jazz has only once before been chosen as a receiving art form, in '93, when the Scottish saxophonist Tommy Smith was made a Fellow.

Laubrock plans to use her award to study, take a sabbatical, and compose.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
