Renowned Jazz & Blues Singer, Barbara Morrison, will present the 1st Annual California Jazz & Blues Museum Hall of Fame Inductee Ceremony Fundraiser and Barbara Morrison’s 69th Birthday Celebration Concert at Catalina Jazz Club, 6725 West Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood, CA  90028 on Monday, September 10, 2018 kicking off with a Red Carpet Arrivals and Reception at 6:00 pm, followed by the Inductee Ceremony at 7:00 pm, culminating with performances by singer Barbara Morrison, the Karen Hernandez Trio, and singers Angie Mack and Monica Doby at 8:30 pm



Aside from her prolific career as a legendary Jazz & Blues Singer, Barbara Morrison also serves as the Founder and President of the California Jazz & Blues Museum, which she opened in Leimert Park, CA in 2017 to house artifacts of California Jazz & Blues musicians.  Morrison said, “The 1st Annual California Jazz & Blues Museum Hall of Fame Inductee Ceremony is a fundraiser for the Museum to develop our digital arts program, so we can introduce basic coding, Android development, organizational structures, basic computer competencies and create an interactive section in the Museum which will give visitors an open source digital portal to the vast historical collection of Jazz & Blues available at the Museum and throughout Los Angeles.  Our goal is to raise $25,000.00.  Our Inductee Ceremony will recognize local, national and international Jazz & Blues legends for their contributions to the music industry.”





The Museum features a variety of Programs for groups of all ages. Programs like Ella’s Pub, Jazz in the Alley and Jazz Hot Seat for our seasoned patrons and our Youth Academy works directly with the Harmony Project teaching over 2200 youth music throughout Los Angeles. We also are excited about the upcoming Digital Arts Program which will launch in January 2019.

The museum features ongoing exhibitions of important historical information about California jazz and blues music, its great performers, and its important place in California and music history. Founder and President Barbara Morrison brings her 21 years of experience as UCLA Associate Professor of Ethnomusicology – Jazz Studies to shape the exhibits and programs.
