Join the 2017 NEA Jazz Masters, recipients of the nation’s highest honor in jazz, for a unique opportunity to hear about these celebrated artists, using music from their careers to tell the story of their lives. Moderated by Jason Moran, pianist and Kennedy Center artistic director for jazz, this event will feature conversation with the 2017 NEA Jazz Masters alongside musicians whose lives they have influenced. The 2017 NEA Jazz Masters are Dee Dee Bridgewater, Dave Holland, Dick Hyman, Dr. Lonnie Smith, and Ira Gitler, recipient of the 2017 A. B. Spellman NEA Jazz Masters Award for Jazz Advocacy (who will be represented by his son, Fitz Gitler). Join the conversation on Twitter using #NEAJazz17.
