This morning the jazz world comes to terms with the loss of a master, a central figure at the too early age of 57. Here is Mulgrew Miller, a welcome visitor to Europe, and to Brecon where photographer William Ellis took these photos in 2002 and 2007, reproduced here with his kind permission. (All enquiries about them to William directly). There are superb homages out there from Peter Hum and Bruno Pfeiffer (in French). In sadness.
A sad loss indeed, and way, way too early. Mulgrew was one of the main piano men for me. The photos bring back great memories of being there in the market hall in 2002 (with NHOP too, another one who left us a long time before he should have).
