The Jazz Foundation of America is planning a tribute to one of its founders on Sunday. It will be a free show, but I expect there will be ample opportunities to donate (which I encourage). The details are:
THE JAZZ FOUNDATION OF AMERICA PRESENTS: A SONG FOR ANN
A Concert Produced by Ed Keane of Boston and The Jazz Foundation of America at Saint Peter's Church 719 Lexington Avenue at 54th Street (entrance on 54th Street)
Sunday, November 5th, 2006 at 7:00 PM sharp Admission is FREE
Scheduled Performers: Grammy Nominee Nnenna Freelon, Grammy Nominee Gene McDaniels, the Great George Coleman, Mike Longo, and Pepper Genie Swinson.
The evening will be hosted by Dr. Billy Taylor, Cofounder, with Herb Storfer, and Ann Ruckert, of the Jazz Foundation.
It should be a good show from a worthy organization. If you go, you might even be helped to your seat by a shadowy blogger volunteering for the Foundation.
