  6. Perry Robinson (1938-2018)

    A great loss. Perry frequently came to Seattle -- to visit relatives, I think. I met Perry on a few of his visits, heard him jam with various local musicians, and had some chances to visit with him. A fiery improviser and a sweet character, he will be missed by all who knew him.
