Per the JFA:
We will be witnessing history to see Herbie Hancock receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from Quincy Jones, with special guest Bruce Willis. Herbie himself will make an all-star tribute to our beloved trumpeter Clark Terry. Appearances by Questlove and Verdine White.
10-time GRAMMY winner Chaka Khan will pay homage to Maurice White (of Earth, Wind and Fire).
As always, we will have seat-rocking talent from young gems like the soon-to-be-famous Cuban sensation Jorge Luis Pacheco and 13-year-old piano prodigy Matthew Whitaker, plus veterans like Jimmy Heath, Albert 'Tootie' Heath, Wallace Roney, Buster Williams, Billy Hart, Steve Jordan and "The Soul of America" Charles Bradley, not to mention the wonderful surprises to be announced as we get closer to “Showtime!”
