Jazz St. Louis executive director Gene Dobbs Bradford said: “Rich was always such a big supporter of Jazz St. Louis, and of jazz music in general. We’re honored to be able to celebrate his life with great music and the support of the artists on his label, as well as musicians from the St. Louis scene that he knew and loved."

Many St. Louis-based artists including Good 4 the Soul, Jesse Gannon, Cheryl Brown, Funky Butt Brass Band, the Gene Dobbs Bradford Blues Experience, the Phil Dunlap Quintet and more will be performing throughout the day, beginning at 1 p.m.
