The Spirit Lives through Jazz Fellowship presents young phenom Hiruy "Henry" Tirfe and friends. Henry is a musician/saxophonist born in Philadelphia and raised in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. At only 24 years of age, Tirfe has perform with The Roots, Joey DeFrancesco, Chill Moody, Solange Knowles, Eric Roberson, Jay Bratten, Robin Eubanks, Ted Nash, Killiam Shakespeare, Bilal Oliver, Patti La Belle and many other artists. Tirfe is also a two time "Outstanding Soloist" winner at the Next Generation Jazz Festival (2016,2017). Henry will be joined by Lee Smith on bass, Nazir Ebo on drums, Neil Podgurski on keys and vocalist Tanqueray Hayward as well as other special guest.

We will also be honoring two revolutionaries of the Philadelphia Jazz Scene, Kim Tucker and Lovett Hines.

Jazz Promoter, Consultant, Jazz Bridge program director and Jazz historian Kim Tucker will be honored for her committment to the Philly Jazz Scene. Kim is a 2nd generation Jazz promoter, who is following in the footsteps of her mother Sue Ford.

Lovett Hines is the Music Education Director at the Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz, and the developer of its world-class music education program. Since 1985, students in the program have participated in a broad range of activities including private instruction, master classes, ensembles, summer jazz camp and live performances around the US. Many graduates of the program include major jazz artist like Christian McBride, Joey DeFrancesco and Jaleel Shaw who have gone on to successful careers in music.

The mission of the Spirit Lives through Jazz Fellowship is to (1) preserve the jazz music tradition, (2) bring the best of African-American musical traditions to the community, and (3) sow a portion of the proceeds back into children’s programs. “What better way to celebrate Jazz Appreciation Month than to celebrate two Jazz Revolutionaries whose lives embody these ideals,” said Joey Harrison the event’s producer.
