The Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz (and famous jazz competition of the same name) was re-branded as the Herbie Hancock Institute in honor of the organization’s longtime board chairman.

Three finalists perform in this final round concert, which also includes a tribute performance to the great New Orleans trumpeter Terence Blanchard.
