Alun Morgan, 1928-2019
The influential and prolific British critic Alun Morgan has died. Morgan’s critiques, reviews and album notes were among the most widely read of those by any contemporary jazz critic. His longtime admirers included fellow critic Mark Gardner, whose own reputation in British jazz circles and elsewhere grew substantially after he fell under Morgan’s influence and entered the critical field. Gardner wrote an appreciation for the January 14 issue of Jazz Journal. To see it, go here.
Alun Morgan, RIP.
