Let's keep the weekend and July -- month of 1000 concerts -- rolling with another legendary Jazzer's 88th anniversary.
Today's born-day badass burst onto the scene during a short stint in the band of Thelonious Monk, and after migrating to Kenny Drew's band he busted out on his own.

I have one more for the last day of the month, making seven for 7.
I am trying to keep it to five a month, but I made an exception for festival season so don't get too hyped that I'm gonna start posting 14 times a month again.
I will see you then, just as soon as I say HBD again to Mr. Lacy here.--J.
