Cornell Dupree with Jon Hammond & Bernard Purdie 1989 Mikell's
RIP Cornell Dupree, Brother Cornell has left the building.
He was the son of Champion Jack Dupree, the great piano player. I remember an old interview with Champion Jack. It was long enough ago that I suppose Cornell wasn't common knowledge. The guy asked him, "are your children musical?" "Cornell plays the guitar," said Jack, "he's doing pretty good up in New York."
Cornell really played around, so he must have been a nice guy. Fare thee well, Brother.
