Kirk Lightsey - February 15th, 1937 - A happy day for Music / 15 de Fevereiro. Um dia a celebrar

A beautiful human being I've had the extream pleasure and fortune to have met, I leave you with a sample of the great man's work.
I may be biased out of a strong sence of friendship for he's truly admirable, but the music leave's no doubt and is testament of his wonderous talent.
Here is a short playlist with some of my favourite recordings of his available on Youtube. Go ahead. Enjoy.

Have a lovely day

(oops, didn't I mention some of the people that have shared his stage?? How thoughtless of me! Here are the names of a few: Bobby Hutcherson, Freddie Hubbard, Curtis Fuller, Betty Carter, Harold Land, Yusef Lateef, Kenny Burrell, Chet Baker, James Moody, Clifford Jordan, Sonny Stitt, Rufus Reid, Benny Golson, Pharoah Saunders, Don Cherry..)
