Schifrin will be receiving this year's Jay McShann Lifetime Achievement Award during the hall's 2010 Induction Gala. The award is named for Muskogee native Jay “Hootie” McShann, a blues pianist strongly identified with the Kansas City jazz scene of the 1940s.

The black-tie gala will be held Tuesday, Oklahoma Statehood Day, in the Great Performance Hall, on the upper level of the Jazz Depot, 111 E First St., in Tulsa's old Union Depot Building. The event will include a 6 p.m. reception, dinner at 7 and the induction ceremony and entertainment at 8.
