FRANK MORGAN - MEMORIAL CELEBRATION AT THE JAZZ BAKERY
JANUARY 5TH, 2008 2:00PM- 5:30PM Open to public

Sammie Roberts Jazz with support from the Jazz Bakery and Mars Jazz is hosting a memorial celebration for legendary bebop saxophonist Frank Morgan.

The memorial will be held at the Jazz Bakery, 3233 Helms Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90034 2:00pm- 5:30pm

FRANK MORGAN, poll-winning alto saxophonist and Bird's protg, was a master interpreter of bebop and ballads. After recovering from a stroke in 1998, Frank played better than ever and received great reviews from critics and jazz presenters alike, adding a new chapter to a personal history of overcoming adversity.

After struggling with drug addiction and prison for three decades, Frank made a much-publicized comeback in 1985, and went on to record nearly twenty LP's and CD's as a leader before his death from colon cancer last Friday, Dec. 14.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
