Legendary pianist Herbie Hancock led an all-star line-up including Wynton Marsalis, Wayne Shorter, Terri Lyne Carrington and Esperanza Spalding at a charity benefit concert in New York on Thursday (13Dec12).

The musicians were later joined by British singer Corinne Bailey Rae at Jazz at the Lincoln Center's Frederick P. Rose Theatre and entertained an audience including actress Liv Tyler and comedian Jerry Seinfeld.

The Historic Night Of Jazz gala was hosted by ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos and filmmaker David Lynch to raise funds for the David Lynch Foundation, which promotes meditation for at-risk youth and military veterans.

During the evening, Dr. Mehmet Oz was honoured with the Unbounded Generosity Award and philanthropist Ray Dalio received the Perfect Health Award for their contributions to the foundation, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.
