Posted 9 January, 2013 in Seattle Jazz - Comments Off comments

Vancouver pianist and tenor saxophonist Ross Taggart, who has performed in Seattle many times and who a number of Seattle musicians have worked with in Canada, passed away early this morning. Taggart had been hospitalized in the fall for renal cancer.

Vancouver saxophonist Cory Weeds, who performed frequently with Taggart and who is performing in Seattle Thursday night, posted on his Facebook page, “Tonight in Portland we play every song, every solo and every note for our friend Ross Taggart. I love you my man and I will miss you. You did more for me than anyone and were a support like none other. You have left a long beautiful legacy that will never ever forgotten.”
