Jazz pianist Ross Carnegie has died at the age of 95.
The Toronto, Canada native began playing piano at age seven and continued his musical journey to many places with his band, eventually calling Dallas home.
One of his big claims to fame was a performance at Louis Armstrong's last birthday.
He also performed on the stage at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, the Riverboat Club in the Empire State Building, and an event hosted by famed talk show host Ed Sullivan.
Carnegie gave a music lesson wrapped in Black history to students at Booker T. Washington High School in Dallas in March of this year.
