My good friend is (was?) his musical director and clarinetist in the Jazz Wizards. He's not in a good way tonight.

I saw Jeff in 1989 in a small pub in Scarborough. Just before he went big. About 10 of us watching him play with his trio. We all knew we saw a magical performance. I saw him live about 5 other times. Great performer and my buddy tells me a he was a great guy to be around.

Music world will miss him, but his friends and family will miss him even more.
