PATHWAYS TO JAZZ AWARDING RECORDING GRANTS TO JAZZ MUSICIANS.
Boulder, CO (May 1, 2015)Now in its second year, Pathways To Jazz will award grants again to 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. Pathways To Jazz seeks to connect people with the rich tradition of jazz in our musical heritage and to expand the reach of that music to a wide audience, especially to those who may not otherwise have access to see, listen, learn or play jazz. Since jazz is a uniquely American art form 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 who are unable to make provisions for themselves to take this essential step. Five grants were awarded 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 May 1, 2015 at the Boulder County Arts Alliance webpage www.bouldercountyarts.org. A grant coaching session will be offered and the deadline to apply is June 30, 2015.
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.

Pathways To Jazz is sponsored by the Boulder County Arts Alliance.
