Jodie Christian, RIP

Jodie Christian

Chicago pianist Jodie Christian accompanied the greatest artists in jazz, from Stan Getz to Lester Young, Coleman Hawkins to Benny Carter, Gene Ammons to Roscoe Mitchell.

In a career that spanned more than 60 years, Christian also co-founded the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, a vastly influential organization that in 1965 began to redefine the way the music was played and presented in Chicago and around the world.
