Northwest Arkansas Jazz Society founder Robert Ginsburg will be one of 26 people from across the U.S. to receive the Jazz Journalist Association Hero Award for 2016.
The award is meant to honor people who are “advocates, altruist activist, aiders and abettors of jazz and who have had significant impact in their community,” according to the Walton Arts Center, where Ginsburg is the jazz curator.
