Booker Little

The first trumpeter emerging after Clifford Brown's death to gain his own sound, Booker Little had a tremendous amount of potential before his premature death. He began on trumpet when he was 12 and played with Johnny Griffin and the MJT + 3 while attending the Chicago Conservatory. Little was with Max Roach (1958-1959) and then freelanced in New York. He recorded with Roach and Abbey Lincoln, was on John Coltrane's Africa/Brass album, and was well-documented during a July 1961 gig at the Five Spot with Eric Dolphy. Little had a memorable melancholy sound and his interval jumps looked toward the avant-garde, but he also swung like a hard bopper. Booker Little led four sessions (one album apiece for United Artists, Time, Candid, and Bethlehem), but died of uremia at the age of 23, a particularly tragic loss. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

Love his sound the way a horn should sound you van feel his notes

A fan since 1978, when his album "Victory & Sorrow" was my lullaby every night. Finally found it again on "Max Roach 4". Glad to know his spirit lives on.

Dear Booker,
If you only knew how much influence you have had on all of us emulators down here! You certainly were one of a kind. Thanks for all of your carefree and jubilant playing.
