Marion Brown

Alto saxophonist Marion Brown, a much loved member of the 1960s jazz avant garde, passed away last week. Peter Hum writes a nice remembrance here. I got my first taste of Brown's music from Destination Out, I'm sure there will be a tribute up at that site soon.

On an unrelated note, you may have noticed my absence lately. I've been working on some projects that have sucked up much of my free time lately, so blogging will likely remain sporadic through November.
