This year’s group of inductees also includes three posthumous honorees: violinist Stéphane Grappelli, pianist/composer James P. Johnson and guitarist Django Reinhardt.

Louie Bellson, Dave Frishberg, Terry Gibbs, Rufus Reid, Gene Bertoncini, Eric Reed, John Clayton, Joseph Alessi, and Aaron Weinstein will all participate as presenters and/or performers.

Trombonist/composer Wycliffe Gordon will be presented with The ASCAP Foundation Vanguard Award for his innovative musical activity as a composer, instrumentalist, performer and educator in the field of jazz.
