Celebrating their lives and artistry

Seven greats

Some of the giants of the music who passed in 2016.

As always, this is an incomplete list.

Some of the artists we would have like to feature did not have short videos that would have fit into the format.

If you think we missed someone important, please send us their name and a good, short YouTube video link of one of their live performances.

2. Pete Fountain – It Had To Be You
3. Toots Thielemans – Midnight Cowboy
4. Paul Bley – Lucky
