Montgomery influenced countless modern jazz guitarists, including George Benson and Pat Metheny. Jones was the driving force propelling saxophonist John Coltrane’s classic quartet.

Henderson’s big band helped create swing music, and his arrangements were used by Benny Goodman’s orchestra. Carter was a masterful scat singer known for her adventurous improvisations.

JALC has inducted 45 members into the Hall of Fame since 2004.
