NY Jazz Initiative
September 28, 2010

The NY Jazz Initiative offers high school and college music students the opportunity to come to New York and immerse themselves in Jazz education. They study with professional musicians in both sectional rehearsals and band rehearsals during an intense week. This culminates with a concert by the students and the staff at a New York jazz club. The vibe of the NY Jazz Initiative is that they're keeping the flame burning and passing the torch to the next generation.

I saw the concert featuring the staff of NY Jazz Initiative and a school from Las Vegas, NV. These kids were so inspired to be playing with New York musicians, it was a real thrill to see! I haven't had that much fun watching live music in a long time.
