    A life well lived. I'm sorry I didn't get to see him live. A reminder to see all of the Elder Statesmen of Jazz. No guarantee how long we'll have them! RIP Maestro!

    RIP. I didn't listen to a lot of his music, but the stuff I did hear gave me great respect for his creativity and individuality.

    ...and his bassoon chops.

    I think I saw a photo of him, (probably staged), where he had a sax in each hand, with both mouth pieces in his mouth, or maybe a sax in one hand, and an ocarina, or something, in the other, held as if he were playing it with his nose. The guy was a ground breaker.
