Abram's wife, Jennie, family and close colleagues are establishing The Abram Wilson Foundation.
It will ensure that all those who were touched by Abram's work - followers, students and collaborators alike, have an opportunity to continue to appreciate his gifts: his recordings, ideas, uplifting enthusiasm and belief in the power of music. Abram was developing numerous projects and had exciting plans to get people playing and listening to great jazz. The Abram Wilson Foundation is committed to enabling his plans and allowing his music to live on for people to learn and be inspired.To kick start the Foundation we would like to complete Abram’s final project Philippa. This project will serve as a tribute and lasting memory to the life of an artist whose music and joy had such a profound impact on the thousands of people he came into contact with throughout his career.
Before Abram died he told us he still had so much he wanted to do, we hope that his Foundation will enable us to fulfuil his dreams and keep his legacy alive.If you would like to make a donation then please follow this link for more details: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/abramwilson/philippa-the-abram-wilson-foundation
