A friend texted me late last night with the news. Very sad. He was certainly one of the pillars of jazz organ.

I bought his very first album - he was 16 years old, and it was considered a revitalization of the genre.

We're running short of jazz organ heroes. Only a few, including Tony Monaco, are notable names that carry on the Jimmy Smith lineage.
Mike from Central NJ, USA
Tools: Ten fingers, two feet, middle-age brain, questionable judgement and taste
Nords: Stage 2EX 76 HP, Electro 6D 73

Seems more a Nord PIano (see script on the back, weighted keys, no drawbars and no PB/MW), anyway thanks for sharing this
