Jazz musician El Hajj Abdullah Rasheed Ahmad (Lynn Hope) was born on September 26, 1926 and died on February 24, 1993. He was noted for his outlandish dress style. Mr Hope appears to have been inactive musically from 1960 until his death.

There are photographs of a Lynn Hope record being issued as Chess 851, which is the lowest known Chess release number; most sources consider that the first Chess release was numbered 1425.
