Great jazz bass player -- since the 50's ( started playing at the clubs @ the LA beaches in the hey day ) -- Performing every weekend at Pebble Beach Resorts > since 1980 . And I have been performing along side him ** for 12 years.

Was at our home yesterday afternoon -- sitting in the garden ..having his hair cut by my wife. Played 3 hours last nite > at our regular gig.. Don with his '63 jazz, that he had so fondly taken out of storage, to join us once week .

Master at classic jazz standup and just had rebuilt his Steinway >> excelled at dbbl bass in the local orchestra.

A stroke early this morning ..

Don who, please? So sorry for your loss.

Do you ever run into a sax player named George Young? Lives in Carmel, I believe. 8th wonder of the world!

You know :: you play maybe 40 weeks a year -- for over a dozen years > about 15-20 inches away from a guy > you connect. Especially when you are the bottom /down beat of the band \:\(

The cable from his bass < would generally end up laying on my hi hat > most the night .. He sat on a tall wooden stool ( he had carried for 40 years ) inches away for 3 hours straight == never a break. Then we would eat/drink & be merry for over an hour after -- He was so well read -- fun to batter around economics /politics / world affairs over a Swiss meal & grog.

Jo,

Thanks for the concert calendar.

You know, since I lived up here for the last 25 years, I've missed the WHOLE WORLD

of great performers because I work on Friday and Saturday nights! That upsets me.

What a price us gigging musicians pay!

Thanks Jo.

I miss our playing,

Don R.
