  1. Bob Moore, RIP

    Yes, and father of R. Stevie
  2. Elliot Lawrence - RIP

    As a leader, am only really familiar with his version of 'Elevation' - will try to dig in to those! Definitely more than just 'the guy who dig the music for Network', for sure.
  3. Elliot Lawrence - RIP

    The pianist and composer Elliot Lawrence died earlier this month. He appeared on a couple Zoot Sims/Al Cohn records in the 50s before pivoting to what I assume must have been more lucrative work. Have always enjoyed the record, 'Happy Over Hoagy'
  4. Bob Koester RIP

    Word from the Chicago Sun Times is Bob Koester has passed away. An absolute giant. Perusing the Jazz Record Mart during my teenage and uni years were such formative experiences. Can't imagine life without the music I stumbled across - purely through his efforts.
  5. Buddy Deppenschmidt (1936-2021)

    Word from his half-sister is Buddy Deppenschmidt has passed away. Appeared a number of Charlie Byrd records, including "Desafinado".
  6. Junior Mance RIP

    René Urtreger's still around as well, I think
  7. R.I.P. Nadi Qamar (1917-2020) very interesting and under-appreciated musician and man
