Poncho Sanchez to Receive Jazz Tribute Award
(Published: September 14, 2010)

Poncho Sanchez to Receive Jazz Tribute Award From Jazziz Magazine: The Los Angeles Jazz Society's (LAJS) 27th Annual Jazz Tribute Awards Dinner & Concert, honoring percussionist Poncho Sanchez with the organization's Jazz Tribute Award, will be held Sunday, October 10, at the Los Angeles Marriott Downtown Hotel. Pianist and composer Mike Melvoin will also receive a Lifetime Achievement Award during the event, which raises money to promote music education and the legacy of jazz throughout Los Angeles.

Former basketball star and longstanding jazz connoisseur Kareem Abdul-Jabbar will present Sanchez with his award during ceremonies, which will also honor Dee Dee Bridgewater (Jazz Vocalist Award), Bill Cunliffe (Jazz Composer/Arranger Award), Anita E. Berry (Teri Merrill-Aarons Founders Award), John Mosley (Jazz Educator Award) and Chloe Feoranzo (Shelly Manne Memorial New Talent Award). Master of Ceremonies Leonard Maltin will preside at the event, for which Norman Lear is Honorary Tribute Chair and the Herb Alpert Foundation is Tribute Host.

Promoted as a "Night of Live Jazz Not to be Missed," and featuring over 90 minutes of live music, many of the 2010 LAJS honorees will perform, including the Poncho Sanchez Latin Jazz Band, Bridgewater, Feoranzo, Cunliffe and his big band, and the Mike Melvoin Trio.
