soundgenerator.com | Jazz guitarist Billy Bauer dies aged 89Jazz guitarist Billy Bauer has died aged 90 in Long island.
William Henry Bauer was born on the 14 November 1915 in New York City, New York, and by the 1940's he was an established guitarist - played with some of the biggest names in Jazz. In the latter part of the decade, Bauer performed with Lennie Tristano and Charlie Parker and, although he never studied with them, they encouraged him in his improvisational style - fast and dynamic.
He played with the Jerry Wald band before joining Woody Herman in 1944 as a member of the 1st Herd. And in 1946 went on to play with Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman and Jack Teagarden.
