Terrible loss, RIP.
Dategories strain, crack and sometimes break, under their burden - step out of the space provided.

"Timeless" and "Characters" are by far my two favorites out of all the great work he's done. Saw him solo and also with Ralph Towner.

Hi,

RIP

Sadly, I think that the whole of the ECM catalogue folks are quite into that age and I think that we will be losing a few more friends.

Great one, indeed.
