RIP Bob Whitlock

Bassist Bob Whitlock died on June 29 age 84.
A founder member of the original Gerry Mulligan Quartet along with Chet Baker and Chico Hamilton Whitlock held a pivotal role in the pianoless quartet. The most revolutionary concept of it's time - 1952 - the quartet was responsible for introducing many people to modern jazz, myself included, and the original 8 sides; Walkin' Shoes, Bernie's Tune, Nights at the Turntable and the rest have long become jazz standards, their success being due in no small measure to Whitlock's role as the group's harmonic foundation.
Read more about Bob Whitlock in this 2012 four part interview for JazzWax.
Sadly missed.
Lance.
