Sticking Up For Children is helping to produce a Concert that honors

the great composer, educator, improviser and all-around musician Edward "Kidd" Jordan. Kidd was an early supporter of SUFC, as he was

of the World Saxophone Quartet, the New Orleans College of Creative Arts, radio-station WWOZ, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation's classes for students, New York City's Vision Festival, and New Orleans' Louis Armstrong Summer Jazz Camp.

You can read below about the "tree-mendous" lineup of performers who will be present to honor Kidd on November 1.

Thanks to the Fertel Foundation and its chief, Randy Fertel, and to the

New Orleans Jazz Museum!

Tickets are available via Eventbrite on the NOJM's website.

 

On our Music page you can hear Kidd and many other supporters of SUFC--Cyril and Gaynielle Neville, Bonnie Raitt, Hamid Drake, William Parker, Jonathan Richman, Arcade Fire, Pretty Lights, Alex de Grassi, Boukman Eksperyans, Ustad Shafqat Ali Khan, Dhyani Dharma ...
