Another great jazz saxman silenced

Just logged in and this is the first thing in my inbox. Another tough blow, and another reason why the music must be aired frequently and consistently

R.I.P Frank Morgan 1933-2007

We've just been notified that Frank Morgan passed away peacefully from
kidney failure this morning, near his family and friends in his hometown
of Minneapolis. He had just completed a successful European tour, even
though he was worried about his health. A memorial gathering is planned
in his longtime home town of Taos, New Mexico, on what would have been
his 74th, birthday, December 23.
