253 West 125th Street, New York, NY (btw 7th & 8th Ave.)
The Jazz Foundation presents its annual “A Great Night in Harlem” gala concert to benefit our Jazz Musicians Emergency Fund. This evening will raise money to assist countless elder jazz and blues musicians in crisis across the country, artists who have spent their lives making ours richer with their music.
This year’s concert is seeking to raise $1.7 million and, with your help, we can do it! 
Past performances and appearances have included legends like Bill Cosby, Quincy Jones, Wynton Marsalis, Dave Brubeck, Elvis Costello, Lou Reed, Danny Glover, Chevy Chase, Hank Jones, Abbey Lincoln, Odetta and many others.
Concert tickets range from $55, $95, $260, $520 to $1500 and are available for online purchase here or for purchase over the phone at 212-245-3999 ext 10. Please note: JFA will be mailing out all purchased tickets to you the week before the event. Ticket purchases are tax-deductible to the extent of the law.
Come join us for an unforgettable night in Harlem…

An intimate private dinner for our major sponsors, patrons and celebrity guests. Join us for great food and a great cause. Tables of 10 are available with $100,000, 50,000, $25,000, $10,000 and $5,000 sponsorship packages. Single dinner tickets are also available for $1500. Please see Sponsorship Opportunities for details.

Held at the historic Apollo Theater in Harlem, the concert brings together more than 50 legends of the Music to say “thank you” for keeping the Musicians and the Music alive. The theme of this year’s concert is “A History of the Music.” Part of this historic event will be celebrating the 100th birthday of jazz legend Max “The Saxman” Lucas, who played with Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk and Muddy Waters, to name a few, and still rides the subway to get to his gigs! 
Some of this year’s performers include:*
Roberta Flack, Little Jimmy Scott, Jimmy Heath, Frank Wess, Davell Crawford (The Prince of New Orleans), Manno Charlemagne of Haiti, Sweet Georgia Brown, Madeleine Peyroux, Vince Giordano & the Nighthawks and many others gems from all corners of the music world who will gather on the Apollo stage to bring you a once in a lifetime expereince.
