MOJO's Board of Directors have been holding
monthly Zoom meetings since April, trying to predict when the return of
safe, socially-distanced JJs will be. It's been the $64,000 (frustrating
and unanswered) question. We do know that whenever that is, the first
event will be the 2020 Jazzalea Awards honoring Creola Ruffin, founder
of the Gulf Coast Ethnic & Jazz Heritage Festival . |
The meetings have been brainstorming sessions to find ways to offer unique live and streaming jazz for you. Earlier this month, MOJO was one of the co-hosts with the Cedric Brooks Project and Sterling Events for Jazz on the Roof: Part Deux, an outdoor benefit in the CAS parking lot for The Food Pantry @ Central. About 125 attended, 20% of them were from MOJO. The next JOTR is set for Sunday, November 29th. Another way to host Jazz Jambalayas in the future? Could (and should) be.
