We have one album by Waymon Reed in our collection, "46th and 8th," which is quite good. It seems that this album, recorded in 1977, was his only one as a leader. As Mr. P. Campbell, states, he was married to Sarah Vaughan for a short time, then divorced. He played with Count Basie in the 1970s, which is where I first encountered him. A fine bebop oriented trumpet player who got his start in R&B. He died of cancer in 1983 at the age of 43.
Question: Why would you assume a narcotics problem? Not every jazz musician is a junkie.
