reading these lists always makes me very nervous. Who did I miss (and maybe that's why he won't return my call)?

From Detroit:

Jack Brokensha (vibes, Australian Jazz Quartet, Motown)

Steve Richko (gifted young pianist in his early 30s)

Brazeal Dennard (founder of Brazeal Dennard Chorale, fantastic African American choir and expert in African-American spirituals.)

I did not know - or remember, at least - that Valdo passed this year.

Eddie Higgins.

And Walt Dickerson's been gone over two and a half years but I still feel it like yesterday.

I did not know - or remember, at least - that Valdo passed this year.

On July 8th (born March 30, 1928). I haven't yet picked up his Savoy date, but I was intrigued by his playing on the Charlie Parker Montreal 1953 Uptown disc. I wanted to write him and find out whether he played anymore, but I never had the nerve. I still wish that I had dropped Bill DeArango a note about 7 years ago when I had the chance...

Eddie Higgins died in 2009 (8/31), not 2010.

The Savoy LP rules. I'll have to grab that Uptown CD one of these days.
