Milt Okun, R. I. P.

The New York Times: Milt Okun, a producer and arranger who helped turn acts as diverse as Peter, Paul and Mary, John Denver and Plácido Domingo into pop sensations, and who founded Cherry Lane Music Publishing, one of the world’s largest independent music publishers, died on Tuesday at his home in Beverly Hills, Calif. He was 92.  

Hat tip to Jeff Meyerson.

He had an ear for talent and produced some of my favorite music. 2016 takes away another piece of my past. **sigh**

He was a giant, a great man who loved the business of music and did all he could to better the lives of musicians. He will be remembered.

Trained as a classical pianist and raised around the music of folk singers like Woody Guthrie, Mr. Okun recorded his own versions of folk songs before he turned to developing the music of other artists.
