In Memory of David Baker

David Baker

If you haven’t yet heard, David Baker, a true jazz legend, passed away on Saturday, March 26th, 2016. David was Jamey’s teacher, friend, and mentor for decades and he will missed immensely, especially among all of us at the Summer Jazz Workshops, where David taught for years. If anyone would like to make a donation in lieu of flowers, this can be done via IU’s Jacobs School of Music and select the “David N. Baker Jazz Scholarship.”

“David Baker was a pioneer in jazz education because he enjoyed playing, thinking AND sharing. You could ask him any question and he’d have the answer or tell you where to find it. I don’t think he ever met someone he didn’t like. His humor helped dispel the myth about improvisation by taking your mind off what you thought you couldn’t do and placing it on what you needed to do to get the music out of your head and onto your instrument. He was a true Jazz Master.” — Jamey Aebersold
