ABOUT THE LOUIS ARMSTRONG EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION

TheLouis Armstrong Educational Foundation, Inc. (LAEF) was founded and funded by Louis and Lucille Armstrong in 1969 to give back to the world “some of the goodness he received.” The mission of the organization is to preserve and promote the cultural legacy of Louis Armstrong by fostering programs, lectures, and other educational events to assist those interested, gifted, and talented in the field of music, primarily jazz. Today, the Foundation is a major source of funding for programs that educate adults and children in the history of American jazz, and it has provided solid financial support to institutions across the nation.

ABOUT THE CENTER FOR JAZZ STUDIES AT COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY

At the Center for Jazz Studies, jazz becomes a music without borders that provides new models for innovative teaching and scholarly inquiry in the arts, humanities, and sciences. Our themes of internationalization, technology and community encourage excellence in research, in the teaching of music and culture, and in the presentation of public events. The Center views the interdisciplinary expansion of the intellectual conversation surrounding jazz, and especially its lifeblood practice, improvisation, as tracing a path toward the development of new knowledge that illuminates the human condition.
