John Scofield, Bill Evans, Will Lee and More to Play a Benefit For Japan Tonight

Keyboardists Bob James and Makoto Ozone, guitarists John Scofield, Mike Stern and Russel Malone, Fab Faux bassist Will Lee, saxophonist Bill Evans and many other musicians will come together for Music For Tomorrow—A Benefit For Japan this evening. Admission fees will be delivered as a charity to The Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami victims. The performance will take place at New York’s Blue Note.

A note about the show reads, “This coming March will mark the three-year anniversary of The Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami of March 11, 2011. Following the tragedy, many world-renowned artists flew to Japan to support and encourage the people of Tohoku (the severely damaged area in northern Japan), including pianist Bob James. Bob’s music united everyone, giving strength and hope to those who were overcoming difficulties.” Other confirmed acts include bassist Ron Carter, singer Bobby Caldwell, guitarist Chuck Loeb and drummer Clarence Penn, among others.
