How The Jazz Coalition Commission Fund Is Helping More Than 100 Jazz Musicians In Need As The Pandemic Wears On
By: Morgan Enos

The COVID-19 pandemic wounded the jazz community, leaving musicians wondering where their next check would come from. Many of them just got much-needed help courtesy of the Jazz Coalition’“and they’ve offered an ocean of curated audio and video in response…

The Jazz Coalition Commission Fund isn’t just a bunch of distributed checks, though: It doubles as an ocean of curated offerings from its recipients. In an immersive online gallery(opens in a new tab), you’ll find video shorts, remote collaborations, clips from livestreamed gigs, and other assorted home and studio footage. Spend a day wading through this smorgasbord of musical riches, and even the uninitiated will receive a crash course in the state of creative music in 2021.

Again, it can’t be overstated how a cash boost can give musicians not only extra spending money, but the mental and spiritual bandwidth to create.
