Jazz: The Second Century
Call for Artists
In the summer of 2006, Earshot Jazz began a project entitled Jazz: The Second Century, an initiative addressing jazz’s progressive transition into the future. The goal of the series is to present music performances that question and expand the conventional boundaries and parameters of the jazz form. As such, this concert series brings that discussion into creative motion where it matters most – on the stage, with an attentive audience.
Earshot Jazz seeks submissions from Seattle-area artists and ensembles for inclusion in the 2014 Jazz: The Second Century series.
Any use of instruments or creative expression will be considered, as will any interpretation of the meaning of jazz. Submissions should include a recorded sample of a project that can be performed in a concert setting. We encourage applicants to include any words or sentiments that speak to their musical interpretation of the next stage of jazz music.
Artists and ensembles are selected by a blind-jury process. Selected artists and ensembles perform during July 2014. Artists will be paid a competitive fee for the performance. Please send submissions electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org; or by mail to Earshot Jazz, 3429 Fremont Place N., #309, Seattle, WA 98103-8650. Submission deadline is June 3.
Direct questions and comments to Earshot Jazz at (206) 547-6763 or email@example.com. A list of past Jazz: The Second Century artists and ensembles can be viewed at
