Subject: Obit: Roy Hargrove (1969 - 2018)

Younger than I, this one. It is enough to break your heart.

His commitment to American music and to the trumpet was legendary.
He was the sort of musician equally at home within
the confines of "straight-ahead" jazz,
the kind you have to be schooled and mentored over time, thoroughly,
in order to play it,
and the music of r-n-b and 'soul' recording artists.

The dark side, is that Roy Hargrove received both the good and the evil
from those around him, mentors or otherwise, in the business.

In his 20's, he was already using heroin. Cocaine would be added at some point.

These contributed significantly to the kidney disease that took his life before his 50th birthday. Hargrove has spent years requiring dialysis.
By the time he stopped using the 'hard stuff', the damage was done.

In the online media, the tributes are pouring in.
Eventually we will hear from Wynton Marsalis, who discovered Hargrove in
Hargrove's native Waco, Texas.
Right now I have yet to see a Marsalis statement. Of course Marsalis and Hargrove
were eight years apart in age,
so Marsalis was very much the elder brother.
It has got to hurt like hell,
when your little brother dies before you do.

The article in SPIN Magazine's webpages states, quoting Hargrove's management's statement,
that "kidney-function-related issues" caused Hargrove to go to hospital.

After admittance, Hargrove went into cardiac arrest and died in hospital.

Tonight, in Newark, New Jersey, the TD James Moody Jazz Festival is taking place.
Had Hargrove been here, alive, he was scheduled to perform there tonight.

There are documented past instances when his health
caused appearances -- even entire tours -- to be cancelled.

Sad news but he died a man, unlike Roy Castles who whinged and moaned about smokers in clubs he played in caused his cancer, Pathetic.

As familiar a lament as this is, this post will repeat it.

Roy Hargrove had his own distinctive sound
and by the standard of sound he was reliable and exemplary.

By sight, it's something else.
I have seen numerous photographs of his face
through his short life, in the past days of
reports following his recent demise.

Some of those photographs do not, I mean do NOT,
look like the same man, and they are not that many years apart.

Questlove, the drummer for The Roots, posted a Tweet
that praised Roy Hargrove to the skies.
A photography was included.
The face was young, unlined, and lean,
just as young Roy Hargrove was slight of build.

By some news reports featuring interviews with management,
Hargrove required dialysis for the last thirteen years.
That means he was under forty years of age
when he first was prescribed dialysis.

And sure enough, the face went all puffy, not to mention the lines.

The best jazz trumpeter of his generation, better than Marsalis. I met a record store employee who said Roy was like an uncle to her, she said he was nice, period.

There have been some good local radio stories about him; he grew up down here in Texas.
