One year attending, as most, my cousin Ann Marie and I bought the Festival tshirt and wore them the next day. Terrence Blanchard had performed and afterward, was in the lower level to sign CDs. Sitting next to him was Ed. When our turn in line for ‘Meet and Greet’ came, Ed asked did we want Terrence’s autograph. We politely replied that we could get Mr. Blanchard’s autograph anytime, we wanted Ed’s!!!! He was kind and flattered, I think, to know his autograph was the one we sought! He signed the back of our shirts, we thanked him, and left on a cloud!! We still gotta get Terrance’s. LOL

Ed Love | 60 Years of Jazz in Detroit

This post is a part of Ed Love | 60 Years of Jazz in Detroit.

Ed Love is a musical institution. Generations of Detroiters know Ed as the voice who guided us through almost 60 years of "Destination Jazz: The Ed Love Program", playing the classics and introducing us to new music each week on WDET-FM.

Now, into his sixth decade of radio, Love is still working, introducing yet another generation to the jazz tradition and the power of music.

Join us in celebrating Ed Love’s 60 Years of Jazz in Detroit.

Stay connected to Detroit
