A handful of jazz musicians have had the dubious distinction of being born on the 29th of February. Among them are

  • Jimmy Dorsey, bandleader and clarinet player (1904 – 1957)
  • Martin France, drummer (1964)
  • Paul Rutherford, free improv trombonist (1940 – 2007)
  • Richie Cole, bebop alto player (1948)

Happy birthday, Richie and Martin!
