Wow. Wallace Roney just passed as well. Bad day for jazz.

Wow indeed. I had no idea that this guy was such an icon - a 'Yoda' for so many jazz stars of today. Some of my rock CDs feature his sons on them, yes incl. Sting - and other artists too. He's had quite a long run for a career that's been inspiring to many.

RIP Super Trooper
