Jazz Forum Arts Supports Relief Effort

As the nation’s attention has centered on New York in recent weeks, the attention of New Yorkers – particularly charitably inclined artists hailing from the city – has centered on the Red Cross. Jazz Forum Arts, a New York City-area organization whose fall season begins tonight, has announced that it will accept voluntary donations to the Red Cross at all its concerts.

Those who go out tonight will be rewarded with another in the parade of all-star tributes to Miles Davis and John Coltrane, both of whom were born seventy-five years ago. This all-star lineup features Herbie Hancock (pictured left), Michael Brecker and Roy Hargrove. John Patitucci and Brian Blade will lay down rhythm for them at the Performing Arts Center at Purchase College.
