Lionel Hampton, who passed away in 2002 at the age of 94, received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award this year. He was nominated by the co-leaders of the current Lionel Hampton Big Band, created in 2015 with the blessings of The Lionel Hampton Estate.

Three of those co-leaders—bassist Christian Fabian, saxophonist Lance Bryant, and special guest, vibraphonist Jason Marsalis—will celebrate Hampton’s life and music at the New Jersey Jazz Society’s Virtual Social.
