Saxophonist, band leader, and composer (1926–1967) whose brilliant improvisatory skills and experimental spirit made him one of the most influential and highly regarded musicians in the history of jazz. After playing tenor and soprano sax with Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, and Thelonious Monk, he led his own groups and made such classic recordings as ‘Giant Steps,’ ‘My Favorite Things,’ and ‘A Love Supreme.’ He died of liver cancer at the age of 41.
