The Jazz Tribute Awards Dinner and Concert is the primary fundraiser for the nonprofit Los Angeles Jazz Society’s highly respected jazz education programs that benefit thousands of students in the Los Angeles Unified School District annually

We had a ball — and a fantastic musical experience — attending the event last year when the great Wayne Shorter received this award.
