Remembering Rodgers Grant


The Real Canadian Music Blog

Jazz pianist Rodgers Grant died on April 12.  He was a jazz pianist and composer, best known for his work with Mongo Santamaria in the 1960’s.  His compositions have been recorded by Mongo Santamaria, Stan Getz, Hubert Laws and Georgie Fame.  His song “Morning Star” was the title track of the Grammy nominated album of the same name by Hubert Laws.  Rodgers was 76.

Morning Star is a very beautiful piece.

Morning Star

A classic tune.  This one will take us all back in time.

About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.
