Pappy Martin Legacy Jazz Society Reception

Please join us Thursday evening at our reception to support the incredible legacy of jazz in Buffalo and to officially recognize our name change from the Masten Jazz Festival Preservation Society to the Pappy Martin Legacy Jazz Society.

As always, your annual membership of $50 helps with our organization's contribution to the Masten Jazz Festival. Should you prefer to mail your check, send to:

Checks should be made payable to: Masten Jazz Festival. (Please include PMLJS on the memo line.)

We hope to see you at the reception. Feel free to invite others to become members. Thank you for your support!

The 20th Annual Masten Jazz Festival, honoring James "Pappy" Martin, takes place on two consecutive Sundays, July 19 and 26, 3:00-8:00 p.m., on the lawn of the Buffalo Museum of Science. The line-up this year is awesome, including world-renowned musicians Bobby Watson, Curtis Lundy, Warren Wolf, Wayne Escoffery, and an extraordinary array of local musicians.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings

Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
