I'm listening to this again:

It still hasn't sunk in yet that I won't see Ralph randomly show up in the drum chair at a Jazz set in the Boston area. We were all a bit spoiled that a player like Ralph could be called in when someone needed a drummer. Ralph drove the band from that drum chair. I will miss that guy.

Back in 1991-ish I saw him a number of times in Alberta in the local jazz clubs and had chance to say hi. The story I heard was that he was planning to move there to take up a music academy job but there were problems with immigration. A friendly guy as I recall and an excellent drummer of course. I did have tickets for his Fo'Tet tour in 1992 but that one fell through.

Yes, very enthusiastic attitude to the music, which will be missed.

Yes, Peterson was a fantastic drummer & musician.   I'm sorry that never had an opportunity to see him perform live. 

It's a cryin' shame he died so young.  Only 58.

Have all on vinyl  except "Hot Blood" (CD) - excellent west coast music

"cool & crazy" = 10" LP - "Big Shorty Rogers Express" is the 12" version.

Last night the February batch of 85th Anniversary UHQCD from Blue Note Japan arrived and I snuck in this listen:
Wayne Shorter "Night Dreamer"

Starting this morning with the more macabre titled "Dance with Death" from Andrew Hill.
