    In the Influences section of my profile Ray is mentioned, among other Detroiters. At the time I was fiddling with a washtub, and Ray was the first person who invited me to try a (his) double bass. Over breakfast at the Coney King I used to probe him for jazz stories but he kept going back to poetry. Ray passed away last summer. Here is a link to Ray McKinney's bio by Jim Gallert.
