The New Orleans chapter of the national Jazz Journalists Association is pleased to honor Edward “Kidd” Jordan as the city’s inaugural Jazz Hero, an award which is being bestowed in conjunction with the Jazz Journalists Association’s annual Jazz Awards honoring significant artistic and journalistic achievements in the music. Everyone is invited to join the JJA and members of the city’s cultural community at a reception and award presentation, which is free and open to the public.

Jazz Hero honorees are activists, advocates, altruists, aiders, and abettors of jazz who have had significant impact in their local communities.
