 Music: Jimmy Day, 1934-1999 (Austin Chronicle . 02-01-99)
If the death of Austin blues guitarist T.D. Bell on January 9 was a hard blow for the Central Texas music scene, the loss of steel guitar player Jimmy Day must be measured in even larger terms -- its impact resonates on a national, even worldwide scale.

 Synthesizer Creator Robert Moog 1934-2005 | Live Music Blog
Robert Moog, the creator of the electronic music synthesizer that bears his name and that became ubiquitous among experimental composers as well as rock musicians in the 1960's and 70's, died on Sunday at his home in Asheville, N.C. He was 71.
His particular specialty was the Ethervox, a version of the theremin, an eerie-toned instrument created by the Russian inventor Leon Theremin, in the 1920's, that allows performers to create pitches by moving their hands between two metal rods.
University music schools quickly established electronic music labs built around the Moog synthesizer, and composers like Richard Teitelbaum, Dick Hyman and Walter Carlos (who later had a sex-change operation and is now Wendy Carlos) adopted them.

 Types of Jazz Music
African-Americans became very angry about the whites copying their music, and soon started making up a more complex and detailed music.
For example, many of their pieces had a different tune, and many more of their pieces had a different sort of rhythm, which made the music sound differently.
The music was now smoother, and could hold out longer notes, called legato notes.

 NPR : Music Visionary Robert Moog, 1934-2005
All Things Considered, August 22, 2005 · It's been said that the Moog synthesizer is as important to popular music as the electric guitar.
He had been known to be suffering from a brain tumor in the last months of his life.
