  • (drums) are now on the teaching staff, joining Leah Chase

    (voice), John Bagnato (guitar) and founding director

    Edward Kidd Jordan.

    We're increasing the number of visiting artists who bring

    their expertise to our students. This year, we hosted the

    legendary bass player Ron Carter (a veteran of Miles Davis'

    band in the 1960s), the pianist Barry Harris and the blues

    artist Corey Harris. We're also adding more performances.

    In addition to playing at Jazz Fest, French Quarter Festival

    and the various festivals produced by the Foundation, we'll

    be doing a monthly jam session at Snug Harbor.

    Auditions for the Spring 2011 semester are scheduled for

    Saturday, Jan. 15. Find out more here.

    COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP

    GRANTS

    This year, were on track to distribute more than $300,000

    through our Community Partnership Grants program. In

    October, we allocated more than $75,000 to local nonprofit

    organizations that present cultural events and hire our

    musicians (such as the Nickel-A-Dance concert series,

    pictured, presented by the Jazz Centennial Celebration). In

    December, we accepted applications in three categories: one

    for creating or exhibiting new art works that showcase

  • Louisiana heritage; an education category for after-school

    and summer programs in music and art; and a new education

    category that allows local public schools to apply for

    funding to help offset costs of instruments, instrument repair,

    teacher salaries and other things essential to arts education in

    the public school system. Early next year, well roll out a

    new grant category to help cover travel costs for our

    musicians going abroad for gigs.

    RAISIN' THE ROOF

    Our pilot program to help musicians qualify for home

    ownership in the Musicians Village - a part of our Raisin'

    the Roof initiative - resulted in 11 people getting keys to

    their own house. Among them was Shamarr Allen (pictured

    with former Foundation board president Ron Sholes). We

    also secured more than $100,000 in funding from the

    Louisiana Disaster Recovery Foundation, which went

    toward a rent subsidy program administered by Sweet Home

    New Orleans. Dozens of musicians have received rental

    assistance through the program.

  • Our second annual Community Day of Service brought

    more than 75 volunteers to the Musicians Village for a day

    of hammering, painting and landscaping. Held the

    Wednesday between Jazz Fest weekends, the Day of Service

    (co-presented with radio station WWOZ) attracted

    volunteers from around the country and overseas.

    MUSICAL M*A*S*H UNIT

    On the same day as our Community Day of Service, we

    partnered with the Tipitina's Foundation to create a Musical

    M*A*S*H Unit, a mobile field hospital for marching band

    instruments. A team of volunteer technicians fixed some 125

    horns brought by students from three local high schools.

    Saxophonist Branford Marsalis, his trombone-playing

    brother Delfeayo and trumpeter Shamarr Allen were on

    hand to give the students clinics on proper instrument care.

  • The Jazz & Heritage Archive received a large grant from

    FEMA to transfer old reel-to-reel tapes of amazing

    interviews, originally done for WWOZ, to digital format.

    The archive also continued expanding its collection with

    artifacts like Houma Indian arrow heads and other

    interesting items. The archive coordinated a fun exhibit of

    photos from weddings that have taken place at Jazz Fest over

    the years (pictured), along with its usual work of

    documenting the oral histories that happen at Jazz Fest (more

    than 50 in the past two years) and coordinating a large group

    of volunteer photographers to document the festival. The

    Archive is open to researchers by appointment. Find out

    TOM DENT CONGO SQUARE

    LECTURES

    In September, we presented a Tom Dent Congo Square

    Lecture featuring Andrew Young, a native New Orleanian

    and a former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and

    mayor of Atlanta. Young spoke at Tulane University about

    his life-long friendship with Dent. Youngs talk coincided

    SYMPOSIUM

    Our second annual symposium in November was titled,

    Triumph of the Spirit: Cultures Role in Overcoming

    Tragedy in New Orleans and Haiti. Haitian musicians

    Manno Charlemagne, Richard Auguste Morse and Jean

    Montes joined authors Ned Sublette, Alfred N. Hunt and

    Jessica B. Harris (pictured) at the Old U.S. Mint for a lively

    discussion.

  • HBO series Treme. We also presented panels on

    marketing music through social media, creating music for

    film and TV, the international music festival market and the

    career trajectory of Troy Trombone Shorty Andrews. The

    conference moved this year to the New Orleans Museum of

    Art, where it will happen again next year. The conference is

    free to attend. See www.syncupconference.com to register.

    TALENT EXCHANGE WEB SITE

    Our Jazz & Heritage Talent Exchange a free service to

    help connect Louisiana musicians with opportunities for gigs

    and to license their music to film and TV productions

    underwent a major transformation this year. We added many

    new features, including an internal messaging system,

    allowing talent buyers to contact artists immediately. Artists

    can now easily upload songs, photos and videos, or update

    their bios and tour schedules. We also created a video

    tutorial showing just how easy it is to set up a page on the

  • The great saxophonist Phil Woods conducted an evening of

    music inspired by the works of A.A. Milne (of Winnie the

    Pooh fame) in a special Jazz Journey event at the New

    Orleans Center for the Creative Arts in February 2010.

    Donald Harrison, Jr. (pictured - photo by Zack Smith), one

    of the most adventurous musicians working today, gave a

    Jazz Journey concert in November in a touching tribute to

    the legendary New Orleans-born drummer Idris

    Muhammad.

    JAZZ FEST EVENTS

    The Blind Boys of Alabama (pictured) were the featured

    performers at Gospel Is Alive, our annual Jazz Fest gospel

    tribute that's also an outreach to senior citizens. The

    Grammy-award winning group performed in a free concert

    at the New Hope Baptist Church along with the Mahalia

    Jackson Youth Choir.

    The Jazz & Heritage Gala, our annual black-tie fundraiser

    to kick off the Jazz Fest season, featured Dr. John in 2010

    and raised more than $95,000 for the Heritage School of

    Music.

  • We distributed more than 8,500 tickets to Jazz Fest through

    our Community Outreach Tickets program. These tickets

    are awarded through an application process to nonprofit and

    social service organizations, which in turn distribute the

    tickets to their needy clients. It's one way we help to make

    sure that the greatest festival in the world is accessible to all.

    FESTIVALS

    The free community festivals produced by the Foundation

    throughout the year keep getting bigger and better.

    Our Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival in October

    celebrated its fifth anniversary in grand style, with a massive

    crowd of more than 15,000 people and performances by Taj

    Mahal (pictured), Ruthie Foster, Barbara Lynn, Corey

    Harris, Henry Gray and many more.

    Our fourth annual Louisiana Cajun Zydeco Festival in

    June featured Buckwheat Zydeco, Steve Riley and many

    more performing to huge crowds.

    We combined our Fiesta Latina and Congo Square

    Rhythms festivals into one great weekend of world music.

    And we closed the year with Kermit Ruffins, Big Sams

    Funky Nation and Glen David Andrews, among others, at

    our third annual Treme Creole Gumbo Festival in

    December.

    See photos from them all at our photo gallery, here.

  • JUNIOR BRASS BAND

    Our Junior Brass Band - a new education initiative that we

    do in partnership with Preservation Hall - teaches the roots

    of the brass band tradition to kids ages 9 to 14. The class

    meets Saturdays at the Jazz & Heritage Center. The Junior

    Brass Band had its first public performance at our Treme

    Creole Gumbo Festival in December. A special guest,

    Branford Marsalis (pictured), sat in.

    GALLERY EXHIBITS

    The Jazz & Heritage Gallery, in the lobby of our offices on

    Rampart Street, hosted a number of exhibits this year.

    Brazilian photographer Alvaro Villela exhibited his work, as

    did New Orleans photo-artist Gus Bennett, who showed a

    montage of post-Katrina portraits called "Organic

    Watermarks." We featured photos of Haiti before and after

    the January earthquake in a show of works by Claudette

    http://email.zandenewman.com/t/r/l/gtkjtk/mpykkut/ji

  • Smith-Brown. And the Gallery presented "Femme Fest

    2010, featuring works from more than 30 women artists,

    including the quilt "Merging of Two Cultures" (pictured) by

    Cely Pedescleaux.

    FANS OF THE FEST

    In March, we presented the great pianist and singer Henry

    Butler in a special fundraising concert for our membership

    organization, Fans of the Fest, in Washington, DC. Proceeds

    from the event help to support the year-round programs of

    the Jazz & Heritage Foundation.

    GULF AID

    The Jazz & Heritage Foundation was a principal sponsor

    (along with our radio station, WWOZ) of Gulf Aid, the May

    14 fundraising concert for victims of the tragic oil spill.

    Headliners included Lenny Kravitz, John Legend, Mos Def,

    Ani DiFranco and Terence Blanchard.
