New York City, February 8, 2021 – Jazz Power Initiative (JPI), a not-for-profit organization, continues its 2021 season of INTERGENERATIONAL JAZZ POWER JAM on Sunday, February 14th, 2021 at 3 PM EST on Facebook Live and YouTube in collaboration with The National Jazz Museum in Harlem.
We are excited to announce the return of INTERGENERATIONAL JAZZ POWER JAM, our monthly performance series featuring veteran artists interacting with audiences and artists of all ages in our community.
Making this video filled our hearts with gratitude for the power of adaptability. Adapting to new situations by using new tools and strategies has enabled us to continue to carry out the mission of Jazz Power Initiative, to transform lives through jazz arts education and performance, during this challenging time.
As so many in our community continue to confront crisis related to loss of health, work and income; increased isolation and depression; Jazz Power Initiative continues to grow and change to serve students, artists, educators, seniors and others where they are — at home.
Students will get a taste of Jazz Power Initiative’s multidisciplinary approach to jazz education through singing, dancing, acting and jazz cultural immersion. Led by Senior Jazz Power teachers Eli Yamin, Antoinette Montague (music) and Mickey Davidson (dance/theatre).
Despite the challenges of this pandemic year, we are grateful for the new skills we have acquired bringing Jazz Power Initiative’s Youth Education and Community Programs online.
This week we celebrate the accomplishments and impact Ray Charles has made in the the world.
Latest news, helpful information, and great jazz music.
