GIVE THE BAND A HAND

Give the Band a Hand was a rousing success!

The 2014 Gala on April 6, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency Downtown Los Angeles was a stellar event. Ruth Price, founder and impresario of the Jazz Bakery, was awarded CJF’s first Nica for lifetime achievement.

Masters in the jazz world, all of whom have played at the Jazz Bakery, presented the best in jazz. On stage were the Heath Brothers Quartet, the Clayton Brothers and Billy Childs with their Sextet, the Gerry Gibbs Quartet, Dwight Trible with John Beasley, and Mike Lang.

LeRoy Downs was the MC. A silent auction preceded the program, and Mark Shustrin presided over the live auction. Ruth was presented with a video of her life, video tributes from musician unable to be there, and remarks from the Jazz Bakery board.

This was truly a gala worthy of the name. Proceeds of the event will support the CJF mission to assist California’s jazz musicians in financial or medical crisis.
