Per Chi Crea


MIDJ, the Italian Jazz Musicians Association, founded in 2014, serves as a central hub for jazz musicians in Italy. Its primary goal is to support policies for jazz and improvisational music, aligning with European practices. MIDJ represents and supports Italian jazz musicians in a rapidly evolving professional landscape, focusing on information, training, and creating opportunities. The association advocates for awareness, collaborates with key players in the Italian jazz system, and works to enhance musicians’ protections. MIDJ contributes to promoting and analyzing the professionalization of jazz musicians, addressing diverse roles within the field including export of Italian jazz. MIDJ, after having selected projects from its members, presents four original proposals, showcasing musicians with recently released or in-progress albums. The selected artists will perform at the Schaulust on Friday the 12th of April at 7 PM.
