What a night it was for jazz musicians and The Jazz Foundation of America when the world’s best jazz musicians came together at the famed Apollo Theater for the Great Night in Harlem fundraiser to raise money for the Jazz Musicians Emergency Fund; great sounds of vintage jazz and lowdown blues by Bruce Willis, Quincy Jones, Chaka Kahn, Charles Bradley, and Questlove to name a few, was heard well into the night.
The event began with a dinner and reception that drew attention to preservation of jazz and blues music with Parmigiani Fleurier presenting Bruce Willis, the actor and musician with a luxury Kalpa XL Automatic. The one-of-a-kind timepiece has an abyss blue dial that features a polished piano keyboard, rhodium-plated appliques, and delta shaped hands with Superluminova coating. The timepiece is significant to blues and jazz music and musicians since it has also been presented to Claude Nobs – founder of the Jazz Festival of Montreux, and discoverer of many of today’s well-known jazz artists. Additionally, many other famed jazz musicians such as Herbie Hancock, and BB King, have been recipients.
