That was exactly my reaction when I first read this headline. Ever since I first moved here a decade ago, I'd been meaning to check him out at Iridium before it was too late, but stupidly never made the time. The same thing happened with Tommy Flanagan with his regular gigs in town.
It's amazing to me that these musicians continue to perform live shows with as much passion as ever to the very end of their lives. I'll never forgive myself for missing out on this, their incredible life-long gift to the world.
