Jazz and Blues saxophone player, Herman Green passed away at the age of 90 in Memphis on November 26, 2020. As I read up on him, I found his life to be amazing. I have attached his obituary below. It looks like he played with anybody that was anybody. A true musician’s musician. The YouTube link takes you to a track list, and I have also attached a video. It is over 10 minutes, and is quite interesting. Enjoy the work of this great player.
