Gheorghe Posted September 24, 2022 Report Share Posted September 24, 2022 Fats Navarro was born on 24.09.1923 in Key West, FL. Imagine, around 2000 I even visited Key West to walk on the earth where this genius trumpet player was born. When I first heard him on record on "A Night at Birdland" (with Bird and Bud and Art Blakey) and read that he was only 26 years old when he died, I was shocked and thought right now he would be in his early 50s. Though I´m a piano player I learned very very much from the lines he played, so great ! I had heard that tragedy struck also some of his family members, his wife died quite early and his daughter who was a lawyer also died early. Maybe some surviving family members coincidally would read this . Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
