The music world lost Abram Wilson June 9, 2012.  He passed at the age of 38 of colon cancer.  Far to early.  I have explored jazz, and the trumpet in particular through an introduction to Donald Byrd, and discovered Abram in my travels.  Spectacular player, absolutely amazing.  He was born in New Orleans and lived in London, UK.  Have a listen to the cuts I have included and then dig a bit deeper, satisfaction is guaranteed,

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.
