Hugh Jackman, Patti Austin, James Taylor, and Harolyn Blackwell, along with Bernie Williams, Randy Brecker, Antonio Sanchez, Chris Potter, and Donny McCaslin will take part in The Nearness of You, a January 28 concert at The Appel Room in honor of late, 15-time Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Michael Brecker.

Padma Lakshmi serves as master of ceremonies. Proceeds from the concert will support cancer research at Columbia University Irving Medical Center—specifically the work of Drs. Azra Raza and Siddhartha Mukherjee.

Tickets for the 7:30 PM concert can be purchased at Jazz.org.

Beginning in May, Tony winner Jackman will embark on a world tour celebrating musical highlights from his career, including the movies The Greatest Showman and Les Misérables.
