August 13, 2021

The Jazz Foundation of America presents Spotlight Jazz All-Star streaming events featuring performances of some of the best talent around.

Some of that talent includes Brandee Younger and Dezron Douglas, Robert Randolph, Davell Crawford, Clifton Anderson, Chris Bruce, Emmet Cohen, Rahsaan Cruz, Steve Davis, Robin Eubanks, Joe Farnsworth, Steve Jordan, Steve Turre, Peter Washington, as well as Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient and performance by George Coleman, with proceeds to support the JFA’s COVID-19 Musicians’ Emergency Fund.

Hosted by Harlem‘s Danny Glover and Angelika Beener with Artistic Director Steve Jordan.

The show was filmed this June 27, 2021, at City Winery, on the edge of Manhattan’s west side, overlooking the Hudson River, and will air virtually on Wednesday, August 18, 2021, at 9:00 pm ET.

SPOTLIGHT JAZZ was the Jazz Foundation’s first “live” event in 16 months, featuring jazz legends and other stellar performers, in front of a limited number of guests, adhering to strict covid protocols.

Although there is no charge to enjoy this concert, please consider donating, as all donations from this 90-minute all-star virtual concert benefit the JFA’s COVID-19 Musicians’ Emergency Fund, established in March 2020, to provide direct financial assistance to musicians and families affected by the pandemic and assistance to cover basic living expenses including rent, groceries, and utility bills.

“We started the Covid-19 Musicians’ Emergency Fund to increase our level of support for our community. We’ve been able to help more jazz musicians and their families this past year and a half than ever before in the history of the JFA, but still, more needs to be done. Obviously, none of this can happen without you. If I can paraphrase former NY Yankee great Reggie Jackson, ‘you guys are the straws that stir the drink.’ Without you, we’re nothing, We are particularly grateful for your continued and loyal support of the Jazz Foundation.” (Dick Parsons, Chairman of the Jazz Foundation).

SPOTLIGHT JAZZ will be online for 24 hours only.
