Sorry to know, very young yet too bad, he had a beautiful tone, very pleasant to hear, which is all about music.
RIP

Goodbye Roy

I met him while he was attending berklee College ~1988. We sat in together with James Williams. He was always very confident but also kind and humble man. He did not let his fame go to his head. He respected the old ways of bebop and it showed in his playing. He was the best of the contemporary jazz trumpeters, imo.

Man, that sucks. 49.

Having just lost a 59yo friend, that truism is on my mind a lot lately.

The 40's are a period in our lives where heart attacks are common. It is a wake up call if one survives. RIP

I was not familiar with his work until this evening.  Listening to him now on Tidal.  RIP Roy Hargrove, you left us way too soon.

So many artists, so little time.

Oh NO, so sad.  Tone tone tone that man had.  One of the greatest.

Roy Hargrove was from Texas and here is an interesting Dallas Observer article from 1977:

Ramsey Lewis had a TV show called Legends Of Jazz.  Roy was on an episode with Clark Terry and Chris Botti.  Roy's playing on the show was outstanding.  I found a You Tube video of show segments, but didn't see Roy on it.

Beautiful, thanks Rich.

I think Botti looks nervous because he knows he can't play like that.
