Here‘s the second and final part of my look into the life of Darnell Howard, an incredible musician and utter mensch! This one was a pleasure to research. Thanks again to The Syncopated Times for this opportunity to share some of his story. I hope you enjoy it.
Wonderful, plain-spoken but deep, and thorough. Anecdotes from Mr. Cusack and excerpts from Darnell’s own letters — wow! And as an aside, I wonder if Eddie Cole’s 1939 band still had his more famous brother Nathaniel in it?
Super article! You took my research several steps further. Thanks for the acknowledgements!
I’m happy you enjoyed it, Hal. Thank you for sharing your research, which was so helpful.
