JAI Benefit Features Jazz Stars

Proving that rock is not the only type of music that can get together star-studded benefit concert lineups, the Jazz Alliance International has assembled an extravagantly long and talented list of musicians to play at New York City’s Town Hall on Dec. 5 in the memory of those who died in Sep. 11th’s terrorist attacks and in the service of the Robin Hood Relief Fund.

The extraordinary list of performers, which may well be subject to further additions, includes Kenny Barron, Joe Lovano, Brad Mehldau, Jane Monheit, Michael Brecker, Regina Carter, Terence Blanchard, Nicholas Payton, Danilo Perez, Joshua Redman (pictured left), Dianne Reeves, Ruben Blades, Bela Fleck, John Scofield, and Cassandra Wilson. All artist fees have been waived for the cause.
