Joel Dorn

Joel Dorn Tribute Lincoln Center

Last night there was a tribute to Joel Dorn, a producer for Atlantic Records who helped bring into the world recordings by Roberta Flack, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Les McCann and Yusef Lateef among many others. He had a knack for bringing great work out of unique artists, producing music that was often a hybrid of soul, jazz and experimental music. Many of the artists he had worked with over the years were present. I'll let the pictures say the rest. FULL GALLERY HERE
