William "Sonny" Criss was an American jazz musician who gained prominence during the bebop era. During the 1970s, Criss had developed stomach cancer and did not play again. As a consequence of this painful condition, Criss committed suicide (self-inflicted gunshot) in 1977 in his adopted city of Los Angeles.
