I recently spoke with Stan Bryant on Midday Jazz on Jazz 91.9 WCLK. Stan L. Bryant formed the Unity Jazz Foundation in 2014. It's a 501c3 nonprofit organization offering endowments, scholarships and awards to students seeking a career in the arts. As part of their work, Unity Jazz Foundation promotes concerts that have featured local and world renowned musicians including pianist, organist Doug Carn, vocalist Julie Dexter, Kam Showers, The Neo Renaissance Jazz Orchestra, Cedric Young and the Westlake Jazz Ensemble.
