Happy Holidays!


I’m thrilled to celebrate my NPR show Judy Carmichael’s Jazz Inspired—now in its 17th year—in the new, gorgeous Steinway Hall in Manhattan. My association with Steinway is long:  They honored me as a Steinway Artist 30 years ago! Yes, I’ve been a Steinway Artist since the piano was invented.  Well, not quite.

Steinway and Sons was one of my initial underwriters for Jazz Inspired and they continue to support me in multiple ways. One of the ways, is an elegant champagne PARTY and recital at their new location and you’re invited! I’ll have my quartet with Harry Allen, Chris Flory and Pat O’Leary and special guest pianist, conductor, composer, arranger (for Diana Krall and other fab folks) ALAN BROADBENT. I’ve been a fan of Alan since his days with Charlie Hayden’s Quartet West and was thrilled when he agreed to play a tune or two at our event.

Many of my past guests will be there so you’ll hear some wonderful music, drink champagne, eat hors d’oeuvres and meet some wonderful people, all in Steinway’s new state of the art theater. It only seats 70 so it will be an intimate crowd.

Please join us and if you can’t, please include us in your end of year donations.  Jazz Inspired is funded primarily through individual donors like you. No gift is too small and we can’t do it without you.

Thanks so much and here’s to a wonderful holiday season!


Mission Statement

The goal of Jazz Inspired, Inc. a not for profit 501c3 corporation, is to bring to the public, particularly school age children, more awareness of America’s classical music – JAZZ – and to promote better understanding of the arts and the creative process.

These goals will be achieved through several means including but not limited to the following:

  1. Residencies in various schools by jazz pianist and historian Judy Carmichael where she will discuss the history of jazz and how individual creativity plays a large role in the continuing creation of this American art form.
  2. Production and promotion of the weekly public radio show Judy Carmichael’s Jazz Inspired which is offered free to Public Radio stations across the country and (when the funds are available) will be disseminated as oral histories to schools nationwide. By listening to the show, students are exposed not only to jazz, but to great artists discussing their work and their inspiration. Young listeners gain new insight to jazz, an understanding of creativity and a source for their own artistic inspiration .

Funds raised are used to: subsidize these educational programs when schools cannot afford to pay for them, contribute to the continuing production of Judy Carmichael’s Jazz Inspired radio program and enable these oral histories to be distributed to schools nationwide.

Judy Carmichael’s Jazz Inspired is made possible by generous donations from listeners. To be a friend of Jazz Inspired, Inc., send your tax deductible contribution to:
