Last night at Tribeca Performing Arts Center Highlights In Jazz producer Jack Kleinsinger presented saxophone legend Sonny Fortune with their annual award.
Every year since 1974 Highlights In Jazz has honored a living jazz musician for their ‘matchless musical achievements’.
Previous honorees have included Lionel Hampton, Roy Eldridge, Frank Wess, Roy Haynes, Maxine Sullivan, Hank Jones and Dr. Billy Taylor to name a few.
