Unveiling of Jazz for Peace Founder Rick DellaRatta at Private VIP Concert in NYC

 Jazz great Rick DellaRatta attended a surprise unveiling of his portrait, Saturday night, October 22 at Joe Franklin's Club in Midtown Manhattan, during Jazz for Peace's fund-raising event. I was able to work the JFP staff to get fabulous photo reference - thanks to Deb and John!
The portrait project was spearheaded by Burton Danet, PhD, co- founder of A Better Community for All - ABC4All  an organization whose mission is to support charitable causes worldwide, within the context of individual communities.
Since the first Jazz for Peace concert, shortly after 9-11, founder Rick DellaRatta has promoted jazz and philanthropy worldwide through more that 800 live performances.
 Here's a couple of pics...
