Show Notes:

This event was a fundraiser for the Jazz Foundation Of America. Initially, it was to be a celebration in honor of Hubert Sumlin’s 80th Birthday. When he passed in December 2012, it was changed to a memorial concert in his honor. When announced, Jeff Beck, Dr. John, and Levon Helm were slated to perform. Levon Helm dropped out prior to the ticket onsale due to recovery time needed from surgery. Jeff Beck dropped out early on without explanation. Dr. John did not appear. The event was not filmed or recorded for official release.
