RIP Eddie Bert

One of the ever fewer jazz legends remaining - trombonist Eddie Bert - died on September 28. A player who worked in the bands of Kenton, Herman and Goodman - to name but some - Bert also recorded with Monk, Mingus and a host of others. There aren't many left from his era, an era which just happened to encompass the years from his birth in 1922 to as recently as 12 months back when he finally hung out his slide to dry.
Eddie Bert was 90 year old.
Lance.
