Thanks to all who supported our annual fundraising gala.
For this night only, Latin jazz artifacts were on display from the world-class jazz collection of the Louisiana State Museum. Featured artifacts included Dizzy Gillespie’s famous bent-bell trumpet, Monk Hazel’s painted maraca, Cocomo Joe’s drum set, vintage international jazz posters, and other ephemera that will not be publically displayed again until the New Orleans Jazz Museum opens.
The evening also featured top shelf open bars, delectable food from the city’s finest eateries, along with a contemporary Latin jazz band whose spicy syncopated strains brought guests to their feet to dance the rumba, mambo, conga and the cha-cha-cha.
