DocFest / New York
DocFest (docfestjazz.org) is proud to have our inaugural New York Benefit Concert (matinee), hosted by The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music.  Featured performers include world renown drummer/composer Eric Harland with Aaron Parks, piano; Matt Brewer, bass; Walter Smith III, tenor sax and Mike Moreno, guitar.

Headlining the event is an incredible trio of the best trumpet players in the world, Randy Brecker, Wallace Roney and Marvin Stamm, accompanied by Helen Sung, piano; Marcos Varela, bass and Reggie Quinerly, drums.  Robert Doc Morgan, MC.

Bring your instruments to participate in the jam session immediately following the concert 5:30pm - 7:30pm, hosted by James Francies.  All proceeds benefit the Helen and Bob Morgan Jazz Scholarship at The New School.


DocFest, Inc. was conceived in 2013 by Chris Walker and Ashley (Tamar) Davis, both alumni of Houston’s Kinder High School for Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA), to honor the career of Robert “Doc” Morgan, HSPVA Director of Jazz Studies (1976 – 1999) and music department chair (1978 – 1992). Under Dr. Morgan’s guidance, the HSPVA jazz program became internationally known as an exceptional model for the successful training of young jazz aspirants, a reputation continuing today under the supervision of Warren Sneed, himself an HSPVA alumnus. The program’s effectiveness is evidenced by the many alumni currently enjoying significant international success, including pianist/composer Jason Moran (recipient of a 2010 MacArthur Foundation “Genius Grant”) and pianist/composer Robert Glasper (recipient of four Grammy Awards and an Emmy Award).
