The Jazz Foundation has partnered with following organizations.


WHAT WE DO AND HOW WE DO IT KEYED UP IS DEDICATED TO ONE SIMPLE PREMISE: WE NEED MORE LIVE JAZZ. There have been obstacles to this goal, of course; Audiences need to be reintroduced -- or introduced for the first time -- to this music; Jazz musicians need more work; Venues need a way to make live jazz a part of their economic livelihood; and someone needs to be able to coordinate all these things. That’s where we come in. KEYED UP! exists to help musicians and venues overcome these obstacles, connect the dots and make live jazz a reality. KEYED UP! operates as a program of the Jazz Foundation of America and collaborates with venues that want to present live jazz by doing the following: 1. KEYED UP! is underwritten by foundations and individuals who want to help musicians play jazz. We will contribute half the musician fees for any gig booked by KEYED UP!. For example, a quartet that would normally cost a venue $400 will only cost the venue $200. 2. If a venue would like help designing a music program, KEYED UP! will work with you to get the right mix and style of musicians/ personalities. This coordination will not cost a dime; musical matchmaking is what we do! 3. For venues that would like to feature live piano in their performances, KEYED UP! will work with them to find affordable solutions, through payment plans, partially subsidized purchases, and free tuning.
