Boulder, CO: Newly formed Pathways To Jazz is awarding grants to jazz musicians to support costs associated with producing recorded works. Pathways to Jazz knows the value that recorded work plays in furthering artistry and wants to support artists who are unable to make provisions for themselves to take this essential step. The program’s objectives are to document and provide wider exposure for jazz music and the music of contemporary American jazz composers and to develop audiences for jazz music through the distribution of recorded performances. This grant will assist talented performers in producing professional, quality media for commercial distribution and self-promotion.
To be eligible an artist must have the capability to produce a studio-quality recording, can evidence a strong artistic track record, and would clearly benefit from producing a recording in terms of artistic development and in furthering and preserving jazz music. Emerging and established artists are eligible and recorded works can be original or the works of other contemporary composers. The creative control of the recording remains with the artist. To apply go to the Boulder County Arts Alliance webpage bouldercountyarts.org. The deadline to apply is June 30, 2014.
As an individual, organization or business you can support the mission of Pathways To Jazz to document and provide wider exposure for jazz music by making a donation to the project through the Boulder County Arts Alliance.
