Today the world lost a great pianist. (what is with Christmas and death? last year it was James Brown ... )

Express condolence, reverence, awe, discuss his work, pay your respects, do what you need to do.

There's not much that I can say besides , thank god he was alive as long as he was to leave us with some of the most important records and playing that was ever memorialised in the jazz genre. A true virtuoso.
