For thirty years, the NEA has gathered the masters of jazz to honor their own. Join us as we highlight these decades – including 2011 inductees Hubert Laws, David Liebman, Johnny Mandel, Orrin Keepnews, Ellis Marsalis, and the Marsalis family – in music and words. And we’ll hear from the creator of the Jazz Masters award, AB Spellman.
