dear advocate…

the journey of our founder’s love of music is one that has spanned six decades beginning with his introduction to jazz and broadway in his childhood home. unbeknownst to the young boy his destiny was fortified to a life in music. this led to positions as a production director, concert promoter, producer, radio personality, music director, mentor, clinician and talk show host.

since our inception four years ago, we have evolved from generating opportunities for emerging jazz artists to perform at private events in alternative spaces, to teaching teens and adults the art of performance presentation, to developing platforms to learn about jazz and building a jazz library.

during this chapter of quarantine and social distance, to keep audiences engage and connect to jazz, we collaborated with the hammonds house museum and developed a program to host digital conversations with respected musicians, vocalists and industry professionals about topics relevant to their craft.
