    We lost Roswell. An innovative trombonist who worked with a lot of great bassist. Here is a late duo with Mark Dresser:

    Reggie Workman:

    Kent Carter:

    Lewis Worrell & Charlie Haden here:

    Original Henry Grimes here:

    There are many more.

    :( Familiar with him from those Carla Bley/Paul Haines recordings.

    He and Steve Lacy are an interesting bridge between Dixieland (which both of them played originally) and free playing. Saw them in Boston around 2000 when the "Monk's Dream" CD came out.

    He mellowed a bit in his old age...a straight ahead duo album with Heather Masse called "August Love Song" from last year:

    Great great musician. He was of those guys like Johnny Hodges or Charlie Haden or Archie Shepp who could play one note and just kill you.

    Like Brian I saw him with Lacy, J.J. Avenel and John Betsch were with them. He and Lacy were so perfect together, and the whole group was really great
