Musician Deaths - 2018
I was in the Lake Como area of Italy some years back (Bellagio & Menaggio) and the weather was crap so I stayed indoors and watched one of Mr.Dodd's DVD's - he was brilliant. And he had an incredibly fast delivery with his jokes. I believe he holds (or held) the record for the most number of jokes told in a given period of time. And he did not have to resort to profanities etc. etc. to amuse audiences. One of a kind. RIP.

R.I.P. to pioneering free jazz pianist and poet, Cecil Taylor. He was 89. I confess to not having wittingly heard any of his music, but I do know this song by Jonathan Wilson which is named for Mr Taylor … Messrs Crosby and Nash in the background doing what they do best (when not at each other’s throats, that is …).

loved jazz violinists......saw Stephane Grapelli Live !
And R.I.P. to Didier Lockwood - French jazz and prog rock violinist who passed away on 18 Feb at the age of 62. Heart attack and a horrible shock for his family. He was popular in Europe and I expect the UK - probably not hugely well known other than that. Drew influence from Jean-Luc Ponty and the like. 

Here he is with Mike Stern which is a fairly big deal ... 

 The ultimate connection is between a performer and its' audience!
