Jazz 4 Justice© was the brainchild of Edward L. Weiner back in 2000 when he was
attending a recital at the George Mason University Department of Music. He was
impressed by the music, but distressed by the small audience. As a Past President of
the Fairfax Law Foundation, he saw an opportunity for the two organizations to work
together. Since then, he has also founded an Annual Law Day Weiner Roast, another
fundraiser for the Law Foundation. Ed serves as the National Fundraising Chairman
of the Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis Foundation (RRPF), is currently President
of the Virginia State Bar, participates in VDOT’s Adopt-A-Highway Program (and may
be spotted on weekends keeping our roads clean), and is involved in numerous other
community projects to make Fairfax an even better place to live. Ed will be quick to tell
you that all of his efforts are made possible by the love and support of his wife, Maura,
and two daughters, Maurissa and Brianna.

Our Special Guest Conductor
Henry N. Butler is Dean and Professor of Law at George Mason University School
of Law. Prior to his appointment as Dean, Dr. Butler was a George Mason University
Foundation Professor of Law and executive director of the George Mason University
Law & Economics Center. For over 20 years, he has led judicial education programs that
teach the basics of economics, finance, accounting, statistics, and scientific methods to
over 3,000 sitting federal and state judges.
From 2007 to 2010, Butler served as the first executive director of the Searle Center
on Law, Regulation, and Economic Growth at Northwestern University School of Law.
He has held prior appointments at The Brookings Institution, Chapman University, the
University of Kansas, the University of Chicago, and Texas A&M University. From 1986
to 1993, he was a law professor at George Mason and during that period also served as
an Associate Dean and Director of the Law & Economics Center.
He received an M.A. and a Ph.D. in economics from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and
State University and a J.D. from the University of Miami School of Law He received a
Bachelor Degree in economics from the University of Richmond.
“God has wrought many things out of oppression. He has endowed his creatures with
the capacity to create and from this capacity has flowed the sweet songs of sorrow and
joy that have allowed man to cope with his environment and many different situations.
Jazz speaks for life. The Blues tell the story of life’s difficulties, and if you think for a
moment, you will realize that they take the hardest realities of life and put them into
music, only to come out with some new hope or sense of triumph.
This is triumphant music.
Modern jazz has continued in this tradition, singing the songs of a more complicated
urban existence. When life itself offers no order and meaning, the musician creates an
order and meaning from the sounds of the earth which flow through his instrument.
It is no wonder that so much of the search for identity among American Negroes was
championed by Jazz musicians. Long before the modern essayists and scholars wrote of
racial identity as a problem for a multiracial world, musicians were returning to their
roots to affirm that which was stirring within their souls.
Much of the power of our Freedom Movement in the United States has come from this
music. It has strengthened us with its sweet rhythms when courage began to fail. It has
calmed us with its rich harmonies when spirits were down.
And now, Jazz is exported to the world. For in the particular struggle of the Negro in
America there is something akin to the universal struggle of modern man. Everybody
has the Blues. Everybody longs for meaning. Everybody needs to love and be loved.
Everybody needs to clap hands and be happy. Everybody longs for faith.
In music, especially this broad category called Jazz, there is a stepping stone towards all
of these.”
