The plaque reads:
The Festival of New Trumpet Music presents Ishmael Wadada Leo Smith the 2008 FONT Award of Recognition in honor of his visionary musical and cultural analysis, his revolutionary approach to composition, and his brilliant brass playing, which has expanded the parameters of creative music for over forty years.

The series continues with Ralph Alessi and Jeremy Pelt today at Le Poisson Rouge, the new venue in the location of the original Village Gate.
