Jazz Standing Up For Itself
I wanted to make note of the campaign being organized by Justice for Jazz Artists, details of which you can read here.
In a previous post, I talked about the need for musicians to organize and/or collectivize on their own behalf. This organization and this campaign represent a credible way to do just that.
Happily, JJA is savvy enough to know that they have to broaden the campaign to include not just musicians, but everyone in the jazz community and, in fact, anyone who cares about artists in our culture not getting the usual shaft.
I urge you to go to the website and sign on as a supporter and to let your circle of friends know about this campaign.
