Jazz Nachrufe 2005
Jazz Obituaries 2005


Wir erhalten oft Anfragen nach verstorbenen Jazzmusikern. Wir haben uns daher entschlossen, auf diesen Seiten nach Jahren geordnete Listen zu veröffentlichen (seit 2005). Auch diese Seiten werden täglich aktualisiert. Wenn Sie an den kompletten Artikeln (Nachrufen) zu den auf dieser Seite gelisteten Musikern interessiert sind, wenden Sie sich bitte per e-mail an uns. Darüber hinaus verweisen wir auf unseren Jazz-Index, die weltweit größte computergestützte Bibliographie zum Jazz, in der neben Büchern und Zeitschriften auch aktuelle Presseberichte aus Tages- und Wochenzeitungen gelistet sind. Sie können Auszüge aus dem Jazz-Index zu bestimmten Stichworten (also beispielsweise konkreten Musikernamen) kostenlos per e-mail erhalten.

We are so often been asked about deseased jazz musicians that we decided to publish death dates on this page (since 2005). As for all of our website, this page is being updated on a daily basis. If you are interested in complete articles on some of the musicians listed on this page, write us an e-mail. You may also be interested in our Jazz-Index, the world's largest computer-based bibliography on jazz, which lists books, jazz periodicals, but also essays from daily and weekly newspapers. You can order excerpts from the Jazz-Index on specific musicians for free by sending us a mail with the respective name(s).
