Intergenerational Jazz Power Jam – World of Change

This event is presented on the Museum FACEBOOK and YOUTUBE page.

Jazz Power Initiative (JPI) continues its 2021 season of INTERGENERATIONAL JAZZ POWER JAM on Sunday, April 11, 2021 at 3 PM EST on Facebook Live and YouTube. In collaboration with The National Jazz Museum in Harlem, “World of Change” is our April Intergenerational Jazz Power Jam.

From our first-ever live-streamed LATIN JAZZ POWER ON JAM a year ago as the worldwide pandemic spread, to our global dance and music spotlight last month with SWINGING INTO SPRING, the intergenerational whirlwind of talent that joined us to come together online over the past year has helped us to stay connected and inspired. For us, like you, it has been a world of change! Audiences of all ages are invited to participate.

Hosted by Jazz Power Initiative’s Managing and Artistic Director Eli Yamin, our April Intergenerational Jazz Power Jam is a fun, friendly-family celebration featuring performances by Knoel Scott (saxophone), Jerry Madera (upright bass), Karen Joseph (flute), Alberto Toro (flute/saxophone), Nicki Denner (piano), Steven Oquendo (trumpet), Wilson Torres (percussion), Zaccai Curtis (piano), Eddie Venegas (violin and trombone), Dwayne “Cook” Broadnax (drums), Bruce Edwards (guitar), Chris Byars (saxophone), Shireen Dickson (dance), Mickey Davidson (dance), Frank Owens (piano), Max Pollak (tap and body percussion), Jennifer Vincent (bass), Ximena Salgado (dance), Annette Aguilar (percussion), and Eli Yamin (piano).

For our audiences of all ages: Help us to showcase you at April’s Intergenerational Jazz Power Jam! PASS THE MIC Dancers, musicians, singers, and poets are all invited to participate by submitting a video from 10 seconds to 3 minutes here, to spotlight their own WORLD OF CHANGE.
