R.I.P.: John Abercrombie (1944-2017)

(born on December 16, 1944 in Port Chester, NY;
died on August 22, 2017 in Cortland, NY)

John Abercrombie just passed away. Thanks for all the great music, my friend.

I know people talk often about "Timeless" and all the brilliant albums for ECM, but I also recommend some other lesser-known gems like "All Strings Attached" (a fantastic concert with Tal Farlow, Larry Coryell, John Scofield and Larry Carlton released on CD and LaserDisc), "That's For Sure" (with another dear friend of mine, Marc Copland, and Kenny Wheeler), "Speak To Me" (a gorgeous duo with Copland, an album I listen to almost every week) and Charles Mingus' bigger-than-life "Epitaph."

Rest In Peace.
