Ahmad Alaadeen

Ahmad Alaadeen (July 24, 1934 – August 15, 2010)[1] was a jazz saxophonist and educator whose career spanned over six decades.[2] A longtime fixture on the Kansas City jazz scene, Aladeen came to wider prominence in the 1990s with a series of self-released albums featuring his swing- and hard bop-oriented compositions that led Allmusic critic Scott Yanow to declare that the saxophonist "deserves to be much better known."[3]
