I am saddened to advise of the sudden passing this evening of my brother-in-law, Joseph "Habao" Texidor, longtime percussionist with Rahsaan Roland Kirk (from 1968 through 1977). Joe was a gentle person, with a constant eclectic dynamism boiling just under the surface. Check out some of his work with RRK on YouTube - helpful, prodding, humorous, possessed! Joseph had it all going, and saw to it for years that RRK was able to make the most of his opportunities for the expression of his art. Well earned rest, but too soon, my brother.
