Now's the Time: Jon Batiste
Jon Batiste, 30, will be presented with the American Jazz Museum's 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award at the Gem Theater on Friday, April 7. A statement issued by the institution declares that "Batiste’s significant strides in jazz at such a young age place him in historic company with other acclaimed artists, like Charlie Parker, Count Basie, Louis Armstrong, and Ella Fitzgerald." You be the judge.
