He blazed across the jazz sky and was gone in a blink when he was killed in a car crash on June 26, 1956. But, what he left in about three and a half years will last forever.
He was dead at 25! It is not a far fetched thought, that had he lived and matured with life's experiences, he may have gone on to become the ultimate trumpet player.

It is so hard for NON-PERFORMING songwriters to introduce a NEW song in today's music world. Could this be why the quality has dropped to an almost laughable state? The ideal situation would be to get as many 'COVERS' as possible with one version better than the other. As far as a 'Definitive' version, with very few exceptions - this is really subjective and a personal viewpoint.
