For the Love of Music~ Kickstart this Project
The interest in Jazz is surging and Jazz Friends is proof of that. Jazz Friends has launched this Kickstarter page to help raise money to preserve and promote this truly American art form called “Jazz”, while they produce the first interactive E Book for Jazz.
They’ve approached Shelly Liebowitz of SRI Jazz about building an interactive e book for IPAD’s and tablets. Uniting interactive e book technology with the foundations of Jazz presents a new way to look at Jazz legends.
They need your help to raise $50,000 for the project. Depending on the amount of your donation you’ll receive various perks.
