RIP Roswell Rudd (1935-2017)

Somewhat belatedly, I've just been notified that Roswell Rudd died on December 21, 2017. Trombonist Rudd began his playing career with Eli's Chosen Six. A Dixieland band that appeared in the classic film of the Newport Jazz Festival. Whether Rudd was with the band at that time I couldn't say. He did forward from the trad scene to the more contemporary sounds and was a longtime associate of Archie Shepp. I don't think I ever heard him live and, although he doesn't feature in my record collection he was highly rated by Downbeat critics who voted him top trombone in 2010.
The Jazz Journalists also named him as Trombonist of the Year on four occasions between 2003 & 2010.
He was 82.
Rest in Peace.
Lance.
