Jazz at Lincoln Center

I am getting ready to head out and get pampered for tonight's big event honoring my boss, Mica Ertegun.
I am honored, along with the office of MAC II, to be invited to such special event. I have the dress and
the shoes, now I just need to get myself ready! Hopefully I will have some photos to share soon!

“Jazz at Lincoln Center is honored that Crosby, Stills and Nash are donating their time and talent to 
perform at this year’s annual gala,” said Wynton Marsalis, Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Managing and 
Artistic Director.  “Individually and collectively, David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash 
are influential and important figures in American music.  Their music is rooted in American folk, pop 
and blues traditions and their experiments with form, harmony and orchestration will make for a 
natural collaboration.”   
“Wynton Marsalis, who has become America’s musical hero and ambassador to the world in the tradition
 of the great Louis Armstrong, has offered us the chance to make music with the Jazz at the Lincoln 
Center Orchestra,” said David Crosby.  “These are musicians who have spent their whole lives becoming
 the very best in the world at what they do.  We are are excited and fascinated with this merging of 
musical streams and looking forward to a night to remember.”  

The Jazz at Lincoln Center gala dinner décor will be designed by David Beahm, and dinner will be served 
by Great Performances, the exclusive in-house caterer for Jazz at Lincoln Center.
