We are saddened to learn of the sudden passing of our dear friend Ralph Ehrenpreis. Ralph was a founding member of the Jazz Bakery Board of Directors and served in that capacity for over 20 years. He was one of the leading immigration lawyers in the United States, and he helped many musicians negotiate their immigration problems. As one of our board members said, "Jazz had no better friend than Ralph Ehrenpreis." Please watch this space and we will let you know how Ralph's family would like us to honor his memory.
