Garrison Fewell (14 October 1953 – 5 July 2015)

GarrisonFewellOn July 5, 2015, Garrison Fewell passed away, following a long, courageous battle against cancer. He was 61 years old, and was performing up to a month before his passing. He is remembered as much as a kind and generous man as he is a world-class musician.

It was Garrison’s wish that his website, as well as his creations as a musician, author, instructor, and human being, be kept alive and available as a resource for creative and improvised music. In this way, Garrison will remain in our minds, ears, and hearts.

As always, we welcome your thoughts.
