CeDell Davis may be the oldest here.  He's 89 now, but I'm not sure how old he was when I saw him.

Hmm, probably Brian Wilson, about 5 years ago, in Bristol.

I saw pianist D!ck Hyman play at Dizzy's Club in TimeWarner Center NYC, christmas-time 2015.  He would have been 88 then.
I saw Ellis Marsalis Jr. in 2002 in Toronto.  He would have been 68 then.  Great show.

I think I saw Ahmad Jamal play in NYC sometime in 2005 at one of the jazz clubs.  He would have been 75.

It's really annoying that the atu2 forum is censoring a man's name.
