Jazz Memorial Site: Notable Deaths & Obituaries

Jazz is a truly American artform whose appeal has proven to be universal since its humble beginnings in the early 20th century. The death of a jazz great can create a collective sense of loss and nostalgia, the feeling that an era has passed. This memorial site was created to honor and remember musicians, singers, composers and others who contributed to this vibrant form of expression that's still evolving today.
