Unhappy RIP Donald Byrd

this news weighs incredibly heavy on my heart. donald byrd died this past monday at age 80.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/..._n_2639910.html

one of the last of his generation. very sad for his family. very sad for all the musicians/listeners who loved his music. i've seen lou donaldson live and i always wanted to see byrd. maybe in another life.

an incredible player. and an amazing writer. he composed some of the most bitching hard bop tunes/records as well as funk fusion.

Really is a shame. Great player, was on the first jazz messengers album I heard and I really admire his musicianship.

RIP
