Jazz Coalition Announces the First Wave of Awardees 

Source: WBGO. Abbreviated list below.

We are thrilled to announce the first round of Jazz Coalition Commission Fund recipients here. Because of your support we are able to award 51 commissions to the following deserving artists. Our esteemed jury of peers and colleagues voted and with a tie, we ended up at 51 total grantees.

BUT we are not done, and we aim to continue to raise more money to fully fund another round of commissions. Please continue to help us spread the word and increase our impact.
