JT News The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation (DDCF) has announced the launch of its Creative Inflections program, a new initiative to provide grants to jazz artists for innovative collaborations with performing-arts presenting organizations. Its inaugural class of five organizations and seven artists—including Wayne Shorter, Esperanza Spalding, Cécile McLorin Salvant, Samora Pinderhughes, and Jen Shyu (pictured)— have received grants of up to $200,000 to develop multidisciplinary works that focus on social-justice themes.
Audio & Video Grammy-nominated pianist, composer, arranger, and producer David Benoit works with a big band—featuring trumpeter Wayne Bergeron and saxophonists Eric Marienthal and Gordon Goodwin—on his latest album, A Midnight Rendezvous, which recently premiered in its entirety on jazztimes.com.
