very sad news indeed. Remember seeing him play frequently back in the day...
Thx for this nice tribute to the great AB.
A sound like no other - pierces straight to the heart.
I knew he'd been dealing with health issues for several years. The world was a happier, more melodic place when he was in it.
Very sad news. Always a great listening experience.
Thank you for the Arthur Blythe posts. I am ashamed to admit I knew his name, but not his music. Now I am becoming aware of what a great talent he was....and I am bummed that I didn't know how nice his playing was....I should have seen him in concert. But at least we have the recordings.
yes , he will be missed , he certainly enriched my life!
