     Billy Higgins
 
 

Born: Oct 11, 1936 in Los Angeles, CA
Died: May 3, 2001 in Inglewood, CA
Genres: Jazz
Styles: Free Jazz, Hard Bop
Instruments: Drums

A very adaptable drummer, Billy Higgins came to fame playing with Ornette Coleman's quartet, but proved to be an expert bop player too. He started his career playing R&B and rock in the Los Angeles area, then teamed up with Don Cherry and James Clay in an unrecorded group called the Jazz Messiahs. In the mid-'50s, Higgins started rehearsing with Ornette Coleman. He was on Coleman's first records (starting in 1958), came to New York, and played with Coleman during 1959-1960, before Ed Blackwell (who was actually his predecessor) replaced him. Higgins and Blackwell were both on Coleman's monumental Free Jazz album, and Higgins would participate in occasional reunions with Ornette Coleman through the years. He kept busy during the 1960s, '70s, and '80s, freelancing with a countless number of major players including recordings with Thelonious Monk, Steve Lacy, Sonny Rollins, Lee Morgan, Donald Byrd, Dexter Gordon, Jackie McLean, Hank Mobley, Mal Waldron, Milt Jackson, Art Pepper, Joe Henderson, Pat Metheny, and David Murray's big band. From 1966 on, Higgins also often played with Cedar Walton's trio, and later with the Timeless All-Stars. Based in Los Angeles during most of the 1980s and '90s, Billy Higgins became an inspiration to younger musicians (including the members of the B Sharp Quartet and Black/Note), opening the World Stage as a performance venue and recording label. In the mid-'90s, Higgins underwent a successful liver transplant, but by 2001 was playing out less, hampered again by liver problems. Sadly, liver and kidney failure would result in his passing on May 3 of that year. He will be remembered as both a jazz supporter and player. Thankfully, since he played on over 700 recordings, one could do a lot of remembering.
