About this image

The Los Angeles Jazz Society's (LAJS) 27TH Annual Dinner & Concert, held Sunday, Oct. 10, presented Grammy Award winning musician Poncho Sanchez with the 'Jazz Tribute Award' and renowned pianist/composer Mike Melvoin with the 'Lifetime Achievement Award.' Master of Ceremonies Leonard Maltin presided over the gala which also honored Dee Dee Bridgewater (“Jazz Vocalist Award”), Bill Cunliffe (“Jazz Composer/ Arranger Award”), Anita E. Berry (“Teri Merrill-Aarons Founders Award”), John Mosley (“Jazz Educator Award”) and Chloe Feoranzo (“Shelly Manne Memorial New Talent Award”). The evening raised money to promote music education, and the legacy of jazz, throughout Los Angeles . The mission of the Los Angeles Jazz Society is to excite, educate and engage public school students with the vibrant rhythms and sounds of the only indigenous American music – jazz. LAJS presents multi-cultural and interactive in-school and off-campus jazz education programs.
