Clef Club of Jazz

Kim Tucker

The passing of Don Gardner earlier this week has his legions of loved ones and friends bewildered, because his death was both surprising and sudden.

State Sen. Vincent Hughes (D-Philadelphia/Montgomery County) and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph will honor local jazz musical legends at their 3rd annual Jazz Legacy Awards, which takes place on July 27th from 12 noon to 2 PM at the Clef Club of Jazz and Performing Arts, 738 S. Broad St. in Philadelphia.
