Remembering Richie Merlo

With great sadness, we learned of the passing of jazz trumpeter, vocalist, and Buffalo Music Hall of Fame lifetime achievement awardee, Richie Merlo, at the age of 79. Merlo was one of Buffalo’s most significant entertainers and jazz contributors. In his early days, performing in many of the clubs that existed with a repertoire of songs and instrumentals. He now joins his all-star jazz friends in the heavens. Many thoughts and prayers to the Merlo family and the multitude of friends Richie made in his lifetime. It was always a joy to see him at JazzBuffalo events as well.
