“We are saddened to have to inform visitors to the site, that Brian Rust died peacefully in his sleep, on January 5th. His loss is devastating to those who knew him as a true and constant friend, for many years. The world of discography and the study of early jazz history has changed completely, by his death.
He leaves behind his wife of six decades, Mary; daughters Angela and Pamela; and son, Victor; plus grandchildren. As details of funeral arrangements and addresses to which condolences may be sent become available, we will update this bulletin.”
