Chamber Music America’s New Jazz Works program provides grants to U.S. jazz ensembles to create, perform, and record new works. The new work may be composed by the ensemble leader or a member of the ensemble. Since 2000, CMA has commissioned 250 original jazz works. Only ensembles consisting of 2-10 musicians may apply to this program. The composer may be either the bandleader or a member of the ensemble. The composer must be an individual, not a group, must be a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S.

The New Jazz Works provides recipients in four ways; with funding to create the work, perform the work, with administrative support, and with admittance to the CMA National Conference.
