On the occasion of Jazz Appreciation Month, Jazz at Lincoln Center (JALC) recently announced Art Blakey, Lionel Hampton, and Clark Terry as the 2013 inductees into the Nesuhi Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame (NEJHF). After gaining the majority popular vote cast by jazz fans around the world between March 6 and March 31, the newest NEJHF class will be inducted on June 4, 2013, in a ceremony at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, at JALC's home, Frederick P. Rose Hall.
Viewers can tune in via live webcast at jalc.org/live.
The NEJHF honors legendary artists or members of the jazz community based on his or her singular dedication and outstanding contribution to jazz. To date, Jazz at Lincoln Center has inducted 41 members into the NEJHF and will continue to induct new members annually. This year's inductees were nominated by a committee of select musicians and scholars and voted in by an international public vote open to jazz fans around the world. This year's nominating committee includes Ed Berger, Bill Charlap, Connie Crothers, Stanley Crouch, Jon Faddis, Vince Giordano, Wynton Marsalis, Dianne Reeves, Phil Schaap, Loren Schoenberg, and Spike Wilner.
The announcement coincides with Jazz Appreciation Month, which in 2001 was established by the U.S. Conference of Mayors to build awareness of and celebrate the rich heritage of jazz. Since the launch, Jazz Appreciation Month has grown to include celebrations in all 50 states and more than 40 countries. www.jalc.org
