TALENT NEEDED: Grants Available for Jazz Musicians to Record New Music
Now in its fourth year, Pathways To Jazz will again award grants to Colorado jazz musicians to support costs associated with producing a recording. Pathways To Jazz exists to provide opportunities for jazz musicians of all ages to succeed in their artistic and educational development by funding qualified jazz musicians to record their music and further their artistry and career. Jazz is an uniquely American art form and it is the program’s objective to see this rich tradition continue for future generations. Pathways to Jazz knows the value that recorded work plays in furthering artistry and supports artists taking this essential step.
Twenty-seven musicians have been awarded since the grant began in 2014 and those artists can be found on www.pathwaystojazz.com. 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. Online applications are available now at the Boulder County Arts Alliance webpage www.bouldercountyarts.org.
A grant coaching session will be offered June 15 and the deadline to apply is June 30, 2017. 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. For more information and to apply or donate, please go to www.pathwaystojazz.com or call 303- 250-7660. Pathways To Jazz is sponsored by the Boulder County Arts Alliance.
