Death toll Rising...

After last year's bumper jazz departure lounge I'm sad to inform you that the gates, pearly or otherwise, are still open...
Brian Rust, who died Jan 5, 2011, was one of the first jazz persons to realise that as well as the music itself being recorded there was also a need for the listeners to know who played what. That he did just that is demonstrated in the number of discographies he compiled.
More details can be found here of a man for whom jazz - and its infra-structure - was his life.
Brian Rust - sadly missed - died age 88.

Another piece of news we don't want to hear... Trumpet player Ian Brown died on Tuesday Jan 4. More detailed information and obit. shortly.
