Apollo Theater — September 24, 2001:
Our benefit concert at the legendary Apollo Theater to support the efforts of the Jazz Musicians’ Emergency Fund September 24, 2001 was most definitely “A Great Night in Harlem.” The concert featured performances from over 50 musicians. Jazz aficionados filled the seats of the Apollo from over 10 states. Some fans even traveled from other countries. The music was dedicated to the victims of the September 11, 2001 tragedy with a portion of ticket sales going to relief efforts.

For the first time in history, the entire Jazz Industry came together to support the musicians: heads of record companies, jazz magazines, BMI, ASCAP, artist management, radio stations, jazz journalists, photographers and more, all came together to raise about $250,000-enough to run the JMEF for an entire year!
