Popper Lou Posted August 21, 2004 Report Share Posted August 21, 2004 How many of the pioneers of jazz are left? Those from the 1930's though the 50's. It seems in the recent months, more and more have left us. I'm not trying to be morbid, but I want to get to see as many of these cats while I can. I can think of these, some I have seen live and the others not yet. Any others to add to the list. Clark Terry, Seen Hank Jones, Not yet Percy Heath; Seen Jimmy Heath; Seen Sonny Rollins; Seen Horace Silver; Seen Max Roach; Not yet Roy Haynes; Not Yet Jon Hendricks; Seen Ahmad Jamal; Seen Lou Donaldson; Seen Benny Golson; Not Yet Von Freeman; Not Yet Johnny Griffin; Not Yet Jimmy Smith; Seen Dizzy Reece; Not yet, don't knowif he is still with us. Think so. Dave Brubeck Not yet Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
