In Memoriam--Roy Hargrove

I'm going to cheat a little here, but about a year and a half ago, I wrote a piece about the opening of Jazz Forum, a jazz club in Tarrytown, and the opening night performer, Roy Hargrove, who died in November, at only 49, from cardiac arrest brought on by kidney disease.  Hargrove had been on dialysis for 13 years.  The picture above is from Hargrove's opening weekend gig at Jazz Forum.

Check out that post here, for some background on the great trumpet player, and here are obituaries from The New York Times, NPR, and Downbeat for even more information.

I will actually write a full post or two for this theme soon, although there may be a few of you who are pleased with the pithiness of this one.
