Clarendelle proud sponsor of “A Great Night in Harlem”

Clarendelle and Domaine Clarence Dillon proudly sponsored “A Great Night in Harlem”, the sold out benefit concert at the iconic Apollo Theater on october 24th, in support of the Jazz Foundation of America’s Jazz Musicians Emergency Funds. For over 23 years, the JFA has been assisting older jazz and blues musicians in need, whether for medical care, housing issues or any number of other crises, making a tangible difference in the lives of people who’ve dedicated themselves to music. The events’ producers lined up an impressive and diverse array of performers: Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones, Chaka Khan, Mwandishi, and, surprise of the night: Bruce Willis wailing on harmonica and singing the blues like the best of them, with cameo surprises by Angelique Kidjo, Susan Tedeschi, Steve Jordan, Ray Parker Jr., Paul Shaffer, and even the Soul man Charles Bradley to name but a few. And discovery of the night: 11 year-old Joey Alexander who blew the audience away with a rendition of “Round Midnight”. US$ 1.5 million were raised but US$ 300,000 are still needed:
