Jazz Foundation of America
A GREAT NIGHT IN HARLEM
Honoring Herbie Hancock
Friday, October 24, 8:30 PM
The Apollo Theater
253 West 125th Street, NYC
FEATURING A RARE COMBINATION
OF ALL-TIME LEGENDS AND UNKNOWN GEMS
FROM THE WORLDS OF JAZZ, BLUES, R&B AND ROCK
We will be witnessing history as Herbie Hancock receives a Lifetime Achievement Award from Quincy Jones with special guest Bruce Willis. Herbie himself will lead an all-star tribute
to our beloved trumpeter Clark Terry featuring Jimmy Heath (who’s turning 88 that night!).
10-time GRAMMY winner Chaka Khan will pay homage to Maurice White (of Earth, Wind and Fire), and we will celebrate the life of the late, great Little Jimmy Scott with 7-time GRAMMY winner Al Jarreau.
As always, we will have seat-rocking talent from young gems like the soon-to-be-famous Cuban sensation Jorge Luis Pacheco and 13-year-old piano prodigy Matthew Whitaker,
plus veterans like “The Soul of America” Charles Bradley, not to mention the wonderful surprises to be announced as we get closer to “Showtime!”

THE CA– — USE
For 25 years, the Jazz Foundation of America has been
keeping jazz and blues alive by helping the musicians
who played with everyone from Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday
to Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones.
We now assist in more than 5,000 cases a year, nationwide.
OUR PROGRAMS INCLUDE:
•Preventing homelessness and evictions by paying rents and mortgages
•Creating work through our Agnes Varis Jazz in the Schools Program,
which reaches thousands of inner city public school children
across America every year
•Providing free medical care and operations through our angels
at Englewood Hospital & Medical Center
•Being there with our Musicians’ Emergency Fund
when illness, hunger, accident or other crisis strikes
Our efforts since Hurricane Katrina have helped
over 1,000 of New Orleans’ most beloved musicians
find work and new homes for their families.
Thanks to the Agnes Varis Trust, hundred of these artists
continue to perform every month.
Whatever the need is, we don’t just fix the problem…
we heal it with dignified solutions and love.
