Hall of Fame

Hall of Fame

The ISJAC Hall of Fame seeks to honor and immortalize those jazz composers and/or arrangers whose body of work has advanced the art form and profoundly impacted the profession by virtue of their:

  • Artistic excellence
  • Singular and unique voice
  • Historic significance, and
  • Influence on future generations of composers

The 2017 ISJAC Jazz Composers Symposium provided the opportunity to award the inaugural group of composers/arrangers into the Hall of Fame. The 2017 inductees are: Chick Corea, Duke Ellington, and Mary Lou Williams.

Additional information explaining the awards process and nomination guidelines will be posted mid-2018.
