Henry Grimes


Jazz bassist, born November 3, 1935 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; died April 15, 2020 in Harlem, NY. After performing with many well-known musicians for a decade, Grimes disappeared from the music scene in the mid-1960's. He was often presumed dead, but was rediscovered in 2002 by Marshall Marrotte, a social worker and jazz fan, in a small apartment in Los Angeles, California. He had sold his bass long ago. With the help of many musicians and a bass donated by William Parker, Grimes took up playing again, and in 2003 he returned to New York where he was active as a musician and educator.
