July 27, 2010; Monterey, California; The Monterey Jazz Festival is pleased to announce that it will honor the legendary impresario, pianist and philanthropist, George Wein, at its 2010 Jazz Legends Gala on Thursday, September 16, at Mission Ranch in Carmel, California. Mr. Wein is the founder of the Newport Jazz Festival and 2005 recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts “Jazz Master” Award.

Hosted by Clint and Dina Eastwood, the Gala will feature the presentation of the Jazz Legends Award to Mr. Wein and will also include a evening of cocktails, a sumptuous gourmet dinner and a special duo performance by the Monterey Jazz Festival’s 2010 Artist-In-Residence, four-time Grammy®-winning vocalist, Dianne Reeves with pianist Peter Martin.

“With George appearing at this year’s MJF it is a perfect opportunity to honor him with our Jazz Legends Award,” said Tim Jackson, General Manager of the Monterey Jazz Festival. “He is truly ‘The Godfather’ of jazz festivals.”

The Gala is $225 per person, with net proceeds supporting the Monterey Jazz Festival’s Education Programs, considered to be some of the most highly regarded in the country.

The Jazz Legends Award was first presented to pianist Dave Brubeck in 2007, and to the composer, trumpeter and bandleader, Gerald Wilson, in 2008.

MJF’s Education Programs have a strong impact on students and schools from coast to coast. Programs include the Traveling Clinician and Latin Jazz Programs, with professional musicians visiting Monterey County schools to teach students how to play and improvise in jazz and Latin styles; the Artist-In-Residence Program, which brings a leading jazz performer to work with students throughout the year; the MJF Summer Jazz Camp, the MJF Instrument and Sheet Music Library, the Digital Music Education Program, the Next Generation Jazz Festival, the Monterey County High School All-Star Band, the MJF Middle School Honor Band and MJF Vocal Jazz Ensemble; and the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra.

ABOUT GEORGE WEIN

Jazz impresario George Wein is considered to be as much a legend as his festivals. Through his company, Festival Productions, he has spearheaded hundreds of music events annually since 1954 when he produced the first Newport Jazz Festival – an event that started the "festival era," according to jazz critic Leonard Feather. At 84, Wein has as much creative fuel as he did when he started that festival and advanced the concept of live music. He pioneered the concept of sponsor association with music events.


As a result of his diverse contributions to jazz and world culture, Wein has been honored by heads of state, educational institutions and leading publications. In January, 2005, he was recognized with a Jazz Masters award as Jazz Advocate by the National Endowment for the Arts. In addition, honors and awards have been bestowed upon him by AARP, Studio Museum of Harlem, Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, the Government of France, New York Urban League, National Music Council, Pratt Institute, DownBeat magazine, the Jewish Advocate, Saint Peter's Jazz Ministry, WBGO/Jazz 88, Symphony Space and other organizations around the world. He is a member of the Collegium of Distinguished Alumni of Boston University and is the recipient of the Centennial Medallion Citation from the Hampton Institute as well as honorary degrees from the Berklee College of Music, Rhode Island College of Music, Five Towns College and North Carolina Central. Mr. Wein is a lifetime Honorary Trustee of Carnegie Hall and a member of the Board of Trustees at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Mr. Wein was decorated with France's Legion d´ Honneur for his creation of the contemporary jazz festival. He was also honored by the French government when he was appointed Commandeur de L´Ordre des Arts et Lettres.

In addition to his work as a producer, George Wein is an accomplished pianist whose group, the
Newport All-Stars, has toured the United States, Europe and Japan. His band has featured some of the greatest musicians in the history of jazz music. Mr. Wein’s autobiography, Myself Among Others: A Life in Music (Da Capo Press), which chronicles his life in jazz, was recognized by the Jazz Journalists Association as 2004’s best book about jazz. JJA also named him 2009's Events Producer of the Year. In addition to his life in jazz, Mr. Wein has a long history of involvement with philanthropy and the arts, including the establishment of the Joyce and George Wein Chair of African American Studies at Boston University and the Alexander Family Endowed Scholarship Fund at Simmons College. Mr. Wein will be in conversation and will perform on the Grounds at the 2010 Monterey Jazz Festival on Saturday and Sunday, September 18 and 19.

ABOUT DIANNE REEVES

A Blue Note recording artist since 1987, Dianne Reeves is the pre-eminent jazz vocalist in the world today. As a result of her virtuosity, improvisational prowess and unique jazz and R&B stylings, Reeves was awarded the Grammy for “Best Jazz Vocal Performance” for three consecutive recordings -- In The Moment: Live in Concert(2000); The Calling (2001) and A Little Moonlight (2003) -- a Grammy first in any vocal category. She has recorded eighteen albums as a leader, and has appeared on dozens of others with such artists ranging from Stanley Turrentine, Steps Ahead, Lou Rawls, McCoy Tyner, George Duke, T.S. Monk, Lenny White, Christian McBride, Nicholas Payton, Terence Blanchard, and many more. Reeves has additionally recorded and performed extensively with Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra; recorded with Chicago Symphony Orchestra (conducted by Daniel Barenboim); and was a featured soloist with Sir Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic. In 2002, Reeves performed at the closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah, and also made an appearance and performance on the season finale of HBO's Sex and the City. In 2003, Reeves was appointed to be first Creative Chair for Jazz for the Los Angeles Philharmonic and became the first singer to ever perform at the famed Walt Disney Concert Hall.

In 2005, Reeves appeared and performed in George Clooney’s film, Good Night, and Good Luck. The soundtrack recording of Good Night, and Good Luck provided Reeves her fourth Best Jazz Vocal Grammy in 2006. After several years of extensive touring, Dianne took a break back in Denver, and in 2008, she released her first Blue Note album of new material in five years, When You Know. MJF/53 in 2010 will be her ninth performance at the Monterey Jazz Festival.

After graduating from high school, Peter received the Presidential Scholar in the Arts award from President Reagan.

"The Nearnest of You"

Philadelphia, PA

”When people ask me about my music and how I got started, I tell them that my singing career really started by accident. Music was never something that I planned to do or something that I picked. It just happened. After all that I've experienced, and all of the wonderful people that I've met, I don't think I would trade this gig for any other in the world.”
One day a shy girl from Philadelphia, PA, was sweeping her front stoop and sweetly singing “Summertime” when a guitarist/writer from Philadelphia International Records walked by and heard her singing. He was so impressed by what he heard that he auditioned her, hired her and the rest is history. That was the beginning of a singing career that would WOW people in Brazil, France, Africa, Japan, Turkey, and other places around the world~~~All About Jazz

Put it this way: Jazz is a good barometer of freedom… In its beginnings, the United States of America spawned certain ideals of freedom and independence through which, eventually, jazz was evolved, and the music is so free that many people say it is the only unhampered, unhindered expression of complete freedom yet produced in this country.~~~Duke Ellington
