RIP indeed. A real lover of jazz.

You're right about that Rick. He and Leonard Feather were the two most influential jazz critics & writers in the decades that I was seriously into the music

I suppose I hadn't realized he was still with us. Passionate about jazz (sometimes passionately wrong, too, but that's OK), always readable.
