Yoko Miwa is based in Massachusetts, a state that many musicians have called home over the years. In this post, we pay tribute to some of the jazz family who were born in MA (hence the title).
Chick Corea (12 June 1941, Chelsea)
Jaki Byard (15 June 1941, Worcester)
Dave Lambert (19 June 1917, Boston)
Sonny Stitt (2 February 1924, Boston)
Roy Haynes (13 March 1926, Roxbury)
Shorty Rogers (14 April 1924, Great Barrington)
Hi Yoko, thanks for remembering Chick, as I still can’t believe he is gone. I just wanted to say hi to you and Scott because it’s been a while, and I’ve been really busy. I hope things are still going well for you guys. Looks like it!
It’s always nice to hear from you! I can’t believe Chick is gone either…. I hope all is well with you! 🙂
