Tamir Hendelman and Lori Bell Remember Dave Mackay

The pianist and flutist pay tribute to their longtime colleague (3/24/32–7/29/20) David Owen Mackay, a jazz pianist, singer, and songwriter of eclectic taste, died on July 29, 2020 in Van Nuys, Calif., at the age of 88. In 1954, Mackay, who suffered from retinitis pigmentosa, became the first blind student to graduate from Trinity College in Hartford, Conn. He later studied music with Margaret Chaloff, Bill Evans, and Lennie Tristano. In the ’60s Mackay worked with Don Ellis in two groups, the Hindustani Jazz Sextet and Ellis’ own groundbreaking orchestra; in the ’80s he formed Interplay with flutist Lori Bell and guitarist Ron Satterfield, garnering four Grammy nominations for their debut album. Among the many other artists Mackay collaborated with over his career were Sonny Stitt, Chet Baker, Jim Hall, Bill Henderson, and Tierney Sutton.
