Jazz Foundation of America Supports Musicians in Crisis

Musicians Quincy Jones, Elvis Costello, Paul Shaffer and Jeffrey Wright are just part of the line-up for the Jazz

Foundation of America's A Great Night in Harlem concert on May 17 at the Apollo Theater.
 
Quincy Jones will be paying tribbute to his mentor, legendary trumpeter Clark Terry who just turned 92 and introduce
a memorial musical tribute for his dear friend Claude Nobs, the beloved Montreux Jazz Festival founder. The Jazz
Foundation of America has been dedicated to saving the homes and lives of elder jazz and blues musicians in crisis.
 
“I cannot even imagine the world without jazz and the blues, and I cannot imagine turning our backs on the very people who gave their lives, their life experiences, and their music to us all these years, especially now when they need us most,” said Quincy Jones.
 
Their Programs Include:
 
•Preventing homelessness and evictions by paying rents and mortgages
 
•Creating dignified work through our Agnes Varis Jazz in the Schools Program
 
•Providing free medical care and operations through their partners at Englewood Hospital & Medical Center
 
•Keeping the heat turned on and food on the table through their Musicians’ Emergency Fund
