Joe Bonner, jazz pianist, has died. I don't have any details.
@Paul Warburton - did ja hear? Might be a good time to drag out some old war stories...
Hi, Ed. I did a buncha gigs and a record with this guy. One YouTube clip is up of lush life. My mother always said to not speak ill of the dead, so I will pass on any war stories.
I met Joe and rehearsed and did some gigs with him in Denver in 1978-79. Suffice to say he had some problems but despite those problems when he was right he certainly could play and compose at a very high level.
He had an unusual knack for showing up at anytime day or night and saying some very "cosmic" stuff. All of that aside he was the real deal and there aren't many with his background and experience left. Sadly.
