Gone Too Soon – Jazz Artists We Lost in 2013

Posted in In Memoriam, Video Vault with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 30, 2013 by curtjazz

As 2013 draws to a close, I want to look back and remember some of the wonderful jazz artists we lost this year. Some had long, illustrious careers, others were cut down in their musical primes. In either case we are so grateful that they were here long enough to share some of their art with us. We are grateful to live in an age where video makes it possible to always have great memories of how their music touched us.

May they rest in peace.
