The details

"Ernie" Farrow (November 13, 1928 in Huntington, West Virginia – July 14, 1969) was a jazz multi-instrumentalist who played piano, bass, and drums. He was perhaps best known as a bassist. He is also the half-brother of Alice Coltrane and is said to have introduced her to jazz.
Farrow started with piano before adding bass and drums. He went on to work with Stan Getz, Yusef Lateef, and Red Garland among others.
