L.A. Jazz Treasure Award: Ernie Andrews
LACMA and the Los Angeles Jazz Society proudly present the sixth-annual L.A. Jazz Treasure Award to vocalist Ernie Andrews.

From their hit singles, followed tours with the Harry James Band, recordings with Cannonball Adderly, and ultimately a long solo career that has spanned over 75 years. Other notable collaborations have included Gene Harris, Ray Brown, Benny Carter, Kenny Burrell, and the Capp-Pierce Juggernaut.
