Ms. Allen, who mentored subsequent generations of Howard University music students while achieving an honored career as a performing and recording artist, jazz educator, passed away in 2017. Renowned drummer-bandleader-educator Terri Lyne Carrington, brings a list of stellar musicians including Bad Plus pianist Orrin Evans, rising star saxophonist Tia Fuller, swiftly emerging vocalist Charenee Wade, and DCJF’s 2018 artist-in-residence Ben Williams. The evening will also highlight the special partnership Geri Allen had with the late NEA Jazz Master vocalist Betty Carter, a major touchstone in Ms. Allen’s extraordinary career.
