Add this crop of international jazz jammers to your Japan benefit slate.
The Blue Note Jazz Benefit, set for Monday, April 18 at 7 p.m., is a solid lineup of world-recognized bop impresarios, including vocalist Madeleine Peyroux, saxophonist Joe Lovano, clarinetist Don Byron and more. Tickets are $45 in advance and $55 at the door, and all admission proceeds will be donated to the Direct Relief’s Japan Relief & Recovery Fund.
"The events unfolding in Japan are tragic, and we want to do everything we can to help," Bensusan said. "We hope that rallying the jazz community in New York for the Benefit Concert will help raise awareness and funds that will go towards rebuilding Japan.”
