3 Giant Losses for the Art Form, Daniel, Gerald and Joe

3 Giant Losses for the Art Form, Daniel, Gerald and Joe
Blog Name: Home Page NewsAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: September 15, 2014
The last few week's have provided major blows for Jazz.  We lost one of our very own here in San Diego (Daniel Jackson) but also Gerald Wilson and Joe Sample.  These men were integral to the art form as composers and arrangers.  Their trumpet and piano, respectively, lent to the honest voice of jazz music.  For Gerald, it began in the Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra in 1939 when he replaced the star trumpeter in the group at the time (Sy Oliver). Joe's contribution started in hard bop and grew into many different styles of playing. Both men led bands and forged new roads. Their music and jazz history will preserve forever.
