Living Jazz is an Oakland-based nonprofit whose mission is to build community, cultivate creativity, and enrich lives by fostering the love of jazz. The organization sponsors several great programs, including Jazz Camp West, the Oakland Community Children’s Choir, and “In the Name of Love,” an annual musical tribute to Martin Luther King. Jazz Search West is their Bay Area talent search for jazz vocalists and solo instrumentalists age 15 and up. The event gives performers a chance to play with a band of outstanding professional jazz musicians including such artists as Walter Bankovitch, Peter Barshay, Denny Berthiaume, Deszon Claiborne, Mark Lee, and Marcus Shelby, and to receive feedback from a panel of esteemed judges. This year’s judges are Kellye Gray, Glen Pearson, John Calloway, and the dynamic Miss Faye Carol.
