    I just heard the great jazz pianist from Memphis, Harold Mabern has passed at the age of 83. He played with Wes for a while, and many others such as Frank Strozier, George Coleman, Lee Morgan, etc...

    What a shame. He was quite the player. Russell Ferrante's (The Yellowjackets) playing reminds me of Mr. Mabern's.

    R.I.P. Harold and thanks for the great music!
