New Orleans has lost another music legend, he and his contribution to music will be missed. There will always be a void without him. The photo below was taken at Jazz Fest and that was the last time I saw him. I do recall smiling about that shiny suit he was wearing.
I only spoke to him once in my entire life many years ago at a Piano Night at Tipitina’s. There was just an air of gentleness about him and kindness as well. He didn’t seem to mind to stop and say hello to me. That’s what I’ll remember the most. Rest in peace my friend and show those angels how to sing….
