SHORT TAKES : Jazz Trumpeter Hardman Dies

December 06, 1990| From Times Wire Services

PARIS — American jazz trumpeter Bill Hardman, a leading member of drummer Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers group in the 1960s and '70s, has died at 57 in a Paris hospital of a brain hemorrhage, friends said today.

Hardman, who also played alongside pianist Thelonious Monk and bassist Charles Mingus, had lived for several years in Paris with his wife. Blakey died earlier this year.

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, he toured the United States and Europe with tenor saxophone star Junior Cook between 1979 and 1981 before settling in France.
