This album is a must-have. Think how well Chun-King will do for your first post-COVID-19 gathering? Still maintaining requisite safe 6 ft distance from your dancing partner-Dancing cheek to expansive air between us.
“Bobby Timmons, a jazz pianist, vibraharpist and composer, died yesterday in St. Vincent’s hospital. He was 38 years old.
Mr. Timmons started studying music at 6 and began his career with Kenny Dorham’s Jazz Prophets in 1956. He played over the years with Chet Baker, Sonny Stitt, Maynard Ferguson, Art Blakey, Cannonball Adderley, and J. J. Johnson.
In the early nineteen‐sixties, he had his own trio and often appeared here and in Washington.
He wrote “Moanin” and “Dat Dere,” among other compositions.
He appeared as one of a quartet of jazz pianists in a program at Judson Hall in 1970, when, according to John S. Wilson, jazz critic of The New York Times, Mr. Timmons gave “a fine, thumping display of righthand figures that sounded for all the world like Fats Waller looming down the straightaway.” (1)
