Trying to learn improvisation skills (at 71!), I ran across a book of jazz etudes with an included CD with rhythm track on one side and a saxophonist in the other, so you can gradually phase him out with the balance control! Before it even came in the mail, I read that the author, Mr. Niehaus had passed away about ten days prior. Perhaps the tiniest piece of him will live on in me, and the two young saxophone players (16, 19) in our Junior College jazz ensemble to whom I mentioned it. One already has it.
Also, even being very much a Clint Eastwood fan, I was very surprised that I was totally unaware of his interests and skills in jazz, as we had just watched a movie with him playing piano in a bar. I was amazed that was actually him! Then I read that Lennie Niehaus was a good friend and collaborator! Guess there's a lot I don't know!!!
