The Walker: Leroy Vinnegar on The Avenue
July 22, 2021
This week we're celebrating the birthday of the Indiana Avenue jazz legend, Leroy Vinnegar. Leroy was known as “the walker”, a name he earned for his mastery of the walking bass jazz style. He recorded over 100 albums, working alongside some of the most important names in jazz history - from Sonny Rollins, to Roy Ayers.
