Randy has announced his father's passing on Facebook.

He was a fine tenor player and a really good guy. Ann and I are pleased to have known him.

The new Mosaic Woody Herman set will feature some examples.

Very sorry to hear this.  Must be very hard on Randy ...

Here's a JazzWax interview (part 1) with Arno:

In addition to his work with Woody, Arno was on several live dates in the early 2000s, all of which can be recommended and appear to be available from the label still, and very cheaply ($8):

My favorite remains something I snagged from right here,  Arno sitting in with Organissimo on Blue Lake radio. Streaming real audio files might not be the greatest fidelity but a great performance all around.

Arno's warm-toned swinging style was instantly recognizable and very satisfying. I'm looking forward to the Mosaic Herman Mars set. R.I.P.

My condolences to Randy and everyone else in his family.  I met Randy 3 or so years ago when my sons and I attended an Organissimo concert at the Grand Rapids Jazz Festival.  He was hosting a jam session at a local venue afterwards.  Great guy.

Having just lost my father, I have great empathy for what he's going through.

Wishing the best.....

Very sad. The loss of a link with the classic past of our music.
