The musician died Thursday from complications from a kidney transplant he received in 2009 from a fan, Laura Mehr, Ware’s manager and record producer, Steven Joerg said.

Ware’s interest in music began at age 10 when he started playing the alto saxophone. By age 14 he was making trips to Manhattan to hear jazz in nightclubs and soon developed a bond with fellow jazz musician Sonny Rollins, The New York Times reported Saturday.
