Another giant in music passed away, sad…

A ‘like’ seems odd in this context. But, thank you BertBird for posting the sad news.

Thanks for the music, McCoy. RIP.

Very sad news - but what a musical legacy he leaves. McCoy appeared frail in live performances for at least 10 years but this still comes as a shock.

I was lucky enough to see him at the Blue Note in NYC in 2018. He was very frail then, being helped on the stairs and getting to and from the piano. But he could still play. I knew then that I was in the presence of one of the giants of jazz. He gave us so much wonderful music. May he rest in peace.

My Favorite [sic] Things - what an album. Will give it a good listen tomorrow, in memoriam.
