Seldon Powell (15 November 1928–25 January 1997) was an American soul jazz, swing and R&B tenor saxophonist and flautist born in Lawrenceville, Virginia, probably best remembered for his early work with musicians like Tab Smith (1949), Lucky Millinder 1949-51), Neal Hefti or Louis Bellson. During the 1960s he ventured into the soul jazz idiom and worked with musicians like Clark Terry, Lou Donaldson, Johnny Hammond Smith and Buddy Rich.[1]
