Jazz Passengers Music Projects

Jazz Passengers Music Projects Inc. (JPMP) is a New York not-for-profit organization that was founded to sponsor artistic and educational special projects created by members of the Jazz Passengers, an avant-garde jazz band founded in 1987 by saxophonist Roy Nathanson and trombonist Curtis Fowlkes.

JPMP was first incorporated as a New Jersey nonprofit in 2012 and then converted to a New York not-for-profit in 2019. We obtained 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status from the IRS in
2015 (EIN 45-556-8813) and are a New York State Charitable Organization under Registration Number 47-67-89, as of 2019.

The signature program of JPMP when it first launched was Subway Moon, a music, poetry, and song-writing education and performance program for students that ran from 2007 to 2018, pairing students in Manhattan with partner schools in France, Germany, England as well as Detroit, Staten Island and the Bronx. JPMP’s overall mission is to strengthen and bridge communities through the transformative power of music, word, and image.
