At the D.C. Jazz Festival Annual Trustee Gala Oct. 21 Charles Fishman, founder of the festival, was presented with the 2013 DCJF John Conyers, Jr., Jazz Advocacy Award. The award was presented by and named after Rep. John Conyers, Jr., D-Mich., for advocacy on behalf of jazz. There isn’t a better advocate for jazz in than Fishman, who is also the festival's executive producer and artistic director.

Gladys Knight made the evening memorable with an emotional concert of her songs
