In our efforts to create employment for artists and to develop a new generation of listeners and performers, JFA acts as a fiscal sponsor for Jazz Generation.

Jazz Generation is a jazz education and performance initiative founded by our Advisory Committee member James Polsky, and it creates playing opportunities for children and adults in separate, yet complementary, programs.
