For Harry Whitaker

This show is in memory of Harry Whitaker who passed away last Wednesday. He was a great composer and arranger as well as a jazz pianist. Featured here is a rare and creative composition called Black Renaissance as well as a couple of tracks in a trio setting. According to what I have read, Harry died poor and without health insurance and never received the care he should have gotten in the last years of his life. This show is also dedicated to our friend Andres Chaparro who introduced me to Mr. Whitaker and has brought so many great artists to Hartford. One of those is Sharel Cassity, a young talented alto sax player who is also heard on this podcast.
