AFRO-AMERICAN MUSIC INSTITUTE CELEBRATES 36 YEARS
Pain Relief Beyond Belief
He was just getting started on his journey as a member of the SAVOY JAZZ family of amazing featured artists! Leroy K. Wolford did his first gig for MONDAY NIGHT JAZZ @ SAVOY in April of 2012 and "tore the joint up"; he was phenomenal! He was as glad to be working at Savoy on jazz night as Savoy was to have him! And we were so looking forward to hearing him again this coming Monday, September 17, 2012! As a matter of fact, prior to that, Leroy was one of our featured artists invited to join Sean Jones, Roger Humphries, Dwayne Dolphin and Max Leake for a song or two at the Savoy Jazz 1 year anniversary celebration jam, held this past Monday, Sept 10, 2012!
I've known Leroy for many years and he never ceased to amazed me how he "wowed" the audience with his distinctive way with the blues. His tragic death on Sept. 9, 2012, is a great loss to the jazz community, not just at home, but worldwide.
We'll miss you, Leroy. Rest well, my friend.
