DocFest, Inc., was established in 2013 by Chris Walker (HSPVA 86) and Tamar Davis (HSPVA 98) to honor the mentoring and tutelage of Robert Doc Morgan, HSPVA Director of Jazz Studies (76 to 99).  Proceeds from the evening's event help support the Helen and Bob Morgan Jazz Scholarship at New York's New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. Recipients of the scholarship are all HSPVA graduates.

Walkers musical career has spanned over 30 years, including 20 years with Al Jarreau as co-vocalist, bassist, music director, and friend. Prior to working with Jarreau, he performed and/or recorded with Ornette Coleman, Bob James, Kirk Whalum, Regina Belle, Cassandra Wilson, Michel Petrucciani, Gil Evans Orchestra among others. He will be accompanied at the concert by Jarreau's rhythm section featuring celebrated keyboardist Larry Williams from Los Angeles.
