Scott LaFaro, Jimmy McGriff

04/03/12 9:00PM By George Thomas

We celebrate the birthday of Scott LaFaro, a bass player who died too young but he did leave us with the Bill Evans Trio recordings of the early 1960's that define the piano trio genre. We also celebrate the birthday of the Hammond B3 organist Jimmy McGriff.
