Herb Wong memorial service May 13

A memorial service for Herb Wong of Menlo Park is set for 2 p.m. Tuesday, May 13, at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, 950 Santa Cruz Ave. in Menlo Park.

Mr. Wong, a prominent educator and jazz historian, concert producer, and journalist, died April 20 after a long illness.

In addition to hosting a radio program for nearly 36 years on the now-defunct jazz station KJAZ, Mr. Wong was known for his extensive writing, in the form of liner notes for recordings and for the pages of major music publications, about the art of jazz and its practitioners.
