Intersection to be Dedicated in Honor of Late Jazz Legend Barbara Morrison


A Leimert Park intersection will be dedicated Saturday as Barbara Morrison Square in honor of the late legendary jazz singer, coinciding with the anniversary of her birth and the inaugural edition of the Barbara Morrison Jazz & Blues Music Festival.

Councilwoman Heather Hutt, whose 10th District includes Leimert Park; Tim Morganfield, Morrison’s longtime partner; and members of Morrison’s family are set to speak at the 10 a.m. ceremony at the intersection of 43rd Street and Degnan Boulevard.

Morrison sang with some of jazz’s biggest names, including Dizzy Gillespie, Ray Charles, Kenny Burrell, Hank Crawford, Nancy Wilson, Mel Tormé, Ray Brown, the Count Basie Orchestra and Doc Severinsen’s Big Band.
