Our Story is unique, In 2009, Linda Morgan set out to make her mark in the Jazz & Blues community with education around Legacy Preservation of Jazz Musicians. She set the stage with a community event in Hollywood with Buddy Collette, Clora Bryant and Michael White as her guests, Marcus Johnson, a Jazz Pianist, performed and it was a Pre-Grammy Show. Roscoe Lee Owens attended the event and saw the amazing work that she was about to embark upon and he joined her and they started the work.

We are grateful for all the work that the Living Legend Foundation has done up until now. It is great when collaborations can happen and great community work continues.
