Meet and hear some of the hottest young jazz musicians currently training under members of the AACM.

AACM Executive's Meet the Young Masters. Members of the AACM "The Executives" will join forces with some of the hottest young jazz musicians currently training under members of the AACM. Fred Anderson was an important elder of the AACM, whose club the Velvet Lounge was a main focal point for much of the musical activity of the AACM for many years. It was at his venue that many of the next generation of musicians got their first opportunities to present their art. It's therefore fitting to hold this intergenerational collaboration in the park named in his honor, keeping his indomitable spirit alive. The theme of the concerts will be to address violence in our communities. Where creativity and economic opportunity are antidotes to violence, we hope to inspire more peace and healing.
