HEARTFELT: SEINA’S “TRIBUTE TO MR. LEONARD GASKIN”

Leonard Gaskin (1920-2009) was a solid bassist who played with everyone: Don Byas, Sonny Stitt, Stan Getz, Eddie Condon, Dizzy GIllespie, Billie Holiday, Ruby Braff, Miles Davis, Kenny Davern, Bud Freeman, Rex Stewart, Charlie Parker — and here he is recalled and his memory kept alive by the very sweet-natured young woman Seina.

  1. When I’m together I try to play with the same warmth, respect and love that this tribute conveys. Beautiful.

  3. Over 20 years ago I was visiting New York and sat in at various venues. On one occasion Leonard Gaskin was on bass; the name was familiar to me at the time but I couldn’t recall from where. When I returned home (at that time, London, UK) I found Leonards name on numerous album credits with many ‘big’ names. He was the most unassuming, kind, generous person & made me feel good about my own playing. A wonderful character.

  4. Thank you for introduced my tribute to Leonard Gaskin.
    Today I found your blog post and so happy of this.

    Here is a story I saw him last time on 2008.
