Jazz royalty. A visionary, and a legend in the jazz world. Any musician would be thrilled to be characterized by those reverential labels. But would someone who didn't play jazz professionally qualify for such honorifics? Hard to imagine, unless you were lucky enough to know Herb Wong.

Herb Wong has elevated my appreciation, understanding and love of jazz exponentially in the over 25 years i have known him. He also helped to rekindle my own interest in playing jazz guitar which has been the single greatest improvement in my personal well being in the last decade. I have been very fortunate to get to know Herb and Marilyn, his wife, very well and am glad that I can call them close friends.
You "have made a difference in the world" Herb. Bravo!
