Jazz legend Sonny Simmons performing for The Kids for Coltrane. “This is the best day of my life,” shouted one of students.  I want to thank Wendy Oxenhorn and her team at The Jazz Foundation of America for bringing this gift of music to our students.

Joining Sonny Simmons was the Michael Marcus Quartet. The musicians came back the next day to perform for the school. The students certainly enjoyed this enriching experience.
