We Preserve Black Arts
Jazz-A-F!RE is by far MBAA’s most popular program largely because we feature and Honor Memphis’ very own LIVING LEGENDS! Held monthly, MBAA’s Jazz-A-F!RE is hosted by Cequita Monique and Prime Cut Trio, who open the first hour with Smooth Jazz, and then the Legendary Honors celebration begins! The last hour is dedicated to our patrons with an invitation to come on stage and join in the fun! To date, MBAA has honored 20+ Living Legends including Kurl McKinney, Herman Green, Joyce Cobbs, Johnny Yancy, and The Temprees!
