Legendary Musicians

Are you a Legendary Musician doing exciting new things? Drop us a quick line and let us know what you’re up to; we just might feature you in a future blog post!

Many students are drawn to the National Forum by the sense of community that is shared among members.  Though we do not have a particular devotion to jazz music, at least not as an organization, John has always referred to Forum members as Legendary Musicians.  Legendary Musicians are those who have made their name by their history with a jazz group.  Whenever Legendary Musicians show up to a jazz performance with the ensemble, they are always welcome to join in, because they have earned the right through their past play – they are the ones who “created that riff” or “played in that ‘legendary’ performance.”  We are proud to claim the following as National Forum Legendary Musicians:
