Pittsburgh Jazz Legend Chuck Austin Remembered

Tuesday, 29 May 2012 08:24 AM Written by 

Chuck Austin was on my list of Pittsburgh Jazz Legends to cover, but his death received excellent coverage in the obit in today's PG.

So far as video, that's been covered by Bee Barnett, former WDUQ staffer now affiliated with PubMusic,  parent company of the online Pittsburgh Jazz Channel.  Her personal blog includes the well-chosen older video I'd have gone searching for.  No need to reinvent the wheel, so  here's the link.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, the Pittsburgh Jazz Legends Series lives on. I've got several more in various stages of completion, both big names and a few from the region but not from Pittsburgh or Allegheny County.
