The New York Highline Ballroom was host to jazz performers Madeleine Peyroux, Regina Carter, Joe Lovano, Sonny Fortune and Antonio Hart on April 19, 2011.  They were there in support of the Blue Note Jazz Benefit for Japan.  Also in the line-up of international jazz musicians were Don Bryon, Harry Allen, Karrin Allyson and many others. 

Funds raised were earmarked for the survivors of the March 11th earthquake and tsunami in Japan.  The Concert billing indicated that 100% of the ticket proceeds were to be donated to the Japan Relief and Recovery Fund spearheaded by Direct Relief.
