Online Fundraiser for Julian Priester

Posted 14 January, 2013 in Seattle Jazz - Comments Off comments

There is currently an online fundraiser for trombonist Julian Priester who is in need of funds to help out with medical and living expenses.

From YouCaring.com:
Many of you know Julian Priester…
…if not personally, then as one of jazz’s living treasures. He’s performed and recorded with the likes of Duke Ellington, Max Roach, Dinah Washington, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Sun Ra… and has been a key member of the Seattle jazz community for the past 35 years.

Prof. Priester recently retired from his longtime faculty position at Cornish College of the Arts, and was hit with a “perfect storm” of events. He sufferred serious kidney troubles, incurring expenses and forcing him to stay near Seattle – both for treatment and to be available for a transplant should the opportunity suddenly arise. That prevents him from touring which, for lack of a pension, is his main source of income. He and his wife have already had to give up their home and put most of their posessions into storage. Even so, it has been a struggle to keep up with the costs of storage, and they cannot reclaim their belongings until the mounting fees are paid off. Soon their things will be auctioned off – not only practical possessions but a lifetime of artwork, music and family history.

If you would like to contribute (there are 83% towards their goal) you can do so here.
