Alto saxophonist Frank Morgan passed away from kidney failure this morning, near his family and friends in his hometown of Minneapolis. He had just completed a successful European tour, even though he was worried about his health.

A memorial gathering is planned in his longtime home town of Taos, New Mexico, on what would have been his 74th, birthday, December 23.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
