Jim Cullum Jr., who promoted jazz in San Antonio and San Antonio to the world, died at his Anastacia Place home Sunday of an apparent heart attack. He was 77.

Cullum led his eponymous jazz band for almost 50 years, had an encyclopedic knowledge of his chosen genre and helped spur development of the River Walk by bringing live music to its banks and sending that music to jazz lovers worldwide.

“He loved this city,” said his longtime companion, Donna Cloud. “He was Mr. San Antonio, and he was always grateful for the love the city gave back to him. He never forgot that and he never took that for granted.”
