Illinois Jacquet, 1922-2004

The face of jazz music is definitely changing. In the past three months alone, three great jazz performers have died: after drummer Elvin Jones' death in May, that of soprano saxophone icon Steve Lacy in June, the great tenor saxophonist Illinois Jacquet died less than a month ago, on July 22.
