Production of two one-hour radio programs, 10 shorter modules (8 to 14 minutes each) and digital components on the history and culture of jazz in New York during the 1950s and 1960s.

WNYC Radio requests a $100,000 production grant (outright funds) from the NEH for the broadcast portion of The Jazz Loft Radio Project, a documentary radio series that will feature a collection of audio recordings taken by photojournalist W. Eugene Smith during the years 1957-1965 in the "Jazz Loft," an after-hours meeting place for many of the day's best jazz musicians. Sara Fishko, WNYC producer and host, will work with Sam Stephenson, The Jazz Loft Project founder, and a panel of scholarly and professional advisors to produce 10 programs of 8 to 14 minutes in length featuring material from audio archive, interviews, narration, and sound design. The series is designed to introduce Smith's collection to the general public and investigate a range of broad-based humanities themes, including jazz and musicology, urban politics, civil rights, and cultural development, among others, through the lens of jazz music.
