Hello

The death has been announced of legendary jazz guitarist Mundell Lowe at age 95.
Quite a guy - he played with Charlie Parker among many, many others.
I was fortunate enough to see him at the Bulls Head in Barnes, London with Martin Taylor, many years ago.
A formidable player.
R.I.P.

    One of my favourites.

    I've got him on so many records by other people (Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Blossom Dearie, Jimmy Forest to name a few), he must have played a million sessions.

    Still, he got to 95 - double/treble what some of his contemporaries did ...and he released a new album when he was 93!

    Not bad going...
    Not much of the gear, even less idea.
