Sad news indeed - although I'm not a huge jazz fan he stood out in his chosen musical field and his most famous hit 'Stranger On The Shore' just evokes some wonderful memories of my youth Smile

I was sad to hear this news. I saw him play only once and that was about 6 years ago. He played beautifully but seemed a little short of breath sometimes. He was such a good musician and entertaining to watch.

Always looked as if he was enjoying life.

I read he performed his last concert in 2013 ....good to hear he was able to perform right up into his eighties!
