As we come to the close of a very challenging year, a harsh reality is that we lost so many gifted musicians of the jazz craft. The fact we had a remembrance program back in April was testimony to the enormity of the loss in 2020, and this further illustrated by this being the first of two additional memorials. While these artists' time on earth has come to an end, they leave behind a wide range of recordings whose impact will continue to felt for a long time indeed. Let's spend some time remembering these departed cats.
