About the Jazz Network Foundation

GuitarThese bands will be formed through an intense competition in the areas of horn, piano, drum, bass, and vocal.  We will develop a volunteer street team of Jazz-heads who will get the word out about this competition. We expect a minimum of 10 musicians per category.

Ushering in these two new dynamic bands, we would like create new conversations about Jazz in Detroit through workshops, such as:

  • The etiquette of Jazz-call and response;
  • Jammin’ before the jam session- encouraging Jazz newbies to work on new techniques;
  • Talk-backs where Jazz lovers and budding musicians get to ask questions;
  • And, why Jazz is important to the world.

We would like to perform in nontraditional settings. We want to record. We want to make Jazz hip and fun.  We also would like to take Detroit’s long music tradition and infuse it with Jazz without compromising its integrity. We want to re-image Jazz and give it back its street-cred. Hey, if you give people something they like, they will follow. I guess we are creating a little Jazz revolution.
