Lee Morgan is remembered as one of the greatest trumpet players to ever grace the hallowed halls of jazz. In his short lifetime, he managed to record over 25 albums, several of which are still considered classics, and have influenced innumerable musicians to hit the scene since his death.
With 185 people dying as a result of Hurricane Sandy and tens-of-thousands more fighting to survive without power or heat or food, it is essential that we come together as a community to make sure anyone who needs help, gets help. And what better way to bring our community together than with music? Let’s not let the suffering of those both near and far become silent. Come out and raise some money with us to benefit all who need aid and continue to be displaced by Hurricane Sandy. We’ll have an AMAZING line-up of artists, a great venue, and lots of incredible music.
