Condolences – Comments and Reactions.
Jazz at Lincoln Center mourns the passing of our dear friend and colleague Phil Schaap. A true inspiration and vital part of our organization since the beginning, Phil served as curator, educator, historian, and an essential part of our programming team who helped keep our halls filled with actual jazz and enthusiastic audiences of all ages. Something that was deemed (at that time) to be impossible in and out of our field. With an ardent commitment to jazz appreciation and education, he illuminated the lives of thousands who have attended our programs and concerts over the years. Phil was steadfast in his belief that the story of real, swinging jazz illustrates a positive, inclusive, and successful metaphor for how we Americans could and would do better.We will miss his encyclopedic knowledge, infallible memory, and conviction that love and understanding of the music are essential today and for generations to come.(Photo by Elizabeth Leitzell for Jazz at Lincoln Center)

Oh no I loved him and was able to do a show with him once. He was like the encyclopedia of jazz, an amazing man. RIP Phil.

Remembering his long-standing radio program on WKCR FM and brief stint on WBGO during the late 1970s to early 1980s—“Jazz for a New Day.” Listening to his shows was like having a class in jazz history for free. I had the chance to meet him on a fact-finding trip to WBGO for WRPR, Ramapo College, where I had my own jazz program and was researching how they set up their broadcast equipment before we went on the air in my other capacity as Chief Engineer. He was most accommodating and I got to watch him in the studio. During one swinging piece, he spontaneously came out from behind the board for a dance—it might have been the Lindy. He was good and it was fun. I drove home, listening to the radio with a new perspective on the man behind the microphone and turntables.
