“We are extremely pleased to honor the legacy of these great individuals who have made significant contributions to the Jazz heritage of Miami and surrounding area,” said Bobby Ramirez, founder of The Miami Jazz Museum.

The Miami Jazz Museum (MJM) is a nonprofit organization that seeks to enrich the human condition and help contribute to the wellness of Miami's multi-ethnic community through its cultural anthropological research initiative dedicated to the advancement, education and historical preservation of Miami's Jazz heritage.

Its main goal is to establish and maintain a physical place for Jazz enthusiasts, students, and the public at-large that would serve as a vital archive source of information that documents and celebrates the history of Jazz in Miami with images and literary essays/biographies of artists in the visual and musical performing arts, places, artifacts and recordings--all things that have made a significant contribution to the culture of Jazz in Miami and surrounding area.

For additional information, or anyone wishing to volunteer, please contact MJM by email info at miamijazzmuseum.com
