Video 6/27/2016: HFNHP Don Redman Jazz Heritage Awards

As part of the Centennial Celebration of the National Park Service, Kennedy Center and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (HFNHP) collaborate to present the 2016 recipients of the HFNHP Don Redman Jazz Heritage Awards—drummer Albert “Tootie” Heath and saxophonist Charles McPherson, joined by the Howard Burns Quartet. The late jazz trumpeter, musical arranger, and bandleader Don Redman was a 1920 graduate of the now-closed HBCU Storer College, whose former campus is part of Harpers Ferry National Historical Park.
