This gig might be self-explanatory—star improvisers unite to raise money for Obama's reelection campaign—but it's anything but ho-hum, thanks to a truly stacked lineup, featuring jazz royalty such as Ron Carter, Roy Haynes, Jimmy Heath, Jim Hall, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Joe Lovano and more. "Very special guests" are promised, and given the caliber of the players already on hand, we're taking that very pretty seriously. Visit jazzforobama2012.com for ticket info.
