JAMM’s Fourth Annual Tribute: Professor Randy “Uncle G” Gelispie

Last February, a full house of friends, family fans and students, over 200 in all, came together to honor MSU Jazz Studies Professor Randy “Uncle G” Gelispie. This was JAMM’s Fourth Annual Tribute Event and Randy was an easy choice when the time came to vote on who to celebrate. Some major swing, be-bop, funk and more, from people like Randy’s longtime collaborators Bill Heid and Perry Hughes , came pouring from The Avenue Cafe that day. The laughter and love were in abundance as well, all because Mr. Randy Gelispie allowed us to honor him with this much deserved tribute party.
