The Jazz Gallery is hosting it’s annual Gala on June 8th at the Players Club in New York City and we have the distinct pleasure of honoring four living jazz legends: George Avakian, Junior Mance, Bob Cranshaw, and Hank O’Neal. Over the next few weeks, we at Jazz Speaks will be introducing you to these men and their lasting influence on today’s music.
