Wikipedia : This day (October 4, 1999), in New York, died Art Farmer, an American jazz trumpeter and flugelhorn player.

@allaboutjazz : Then, in 1959, he became a co-leader of the Jazztet with Benny Golson, a group that remained together from 1959-’62 and was revived in the early ’80s. The Jazztet possibly enjoyed less success than it deserved. The unique combination of Farmer’s improvisational talent and leadership combined with Benny Golson’s gift for composition and arrangement produced a number of world-class recordings.

@allmusic : Along with Clark Terry, Farmer helped to popularize the flügelhorn among brass players. His lyricism gave his bop-oriented style its own personality.

@last.fm : He began working out of Los Angeles from the mid-1940s, playing in the bands of Benny Carter and Jay McShann among others. In the mid 1950s he relocated to New York, and performed and recorded with Gigi Gryce, Horace Silver, Gerry Mulligan, and others.
