Lionel Hampton, Jazz Great, Dies at 94

Continueing on this note, visit this website at the University of Idaho,
Moscow, that was heavily involved with Lionel Hampton for many years.


When I was in High School in the early '80s I was fortunate enough to see
Mr. Hampton perform at least once a year because he was always the guest
host at the UofI, Moscow Jazz Festival. The school later changed the name of
the festival to the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival. A very gracious man and
great promoter of jazz music to the younger generations.
