THE JAZZ FOUNDATION OF AMERICA

Joe Lovano and John Scofield team up with Jazz at Lincoln Center to bring together incredible performers in the fourth annual benefit concert Playing Our Parts at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola on April 24, 2012 with a two-hour single set at 7:30pm. All artists are donating their services, Jazz at Lincoln Center is donating its venue and caterer Great Performances is donating food and beverages to raise much-needed revenue for the Jazz Foundation of America's Jazz Musicians Emergency Fund. We invite the jazz community and music fans to come together in remembrance of jazz bassist Dennis Irwin, who passed away in 2008 due to a serious illness, and in support of all those jazz musicians in need of health care today. This annual benefit event was first held in March 2008 at Jazz at Lincoln Center in honor of Dennis Irwin.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
