A sad sad day in the jazz world.
« on: 02 Mar 2008, 20:54 »

A great jazz musician has passed away today at the age of 41. Jeff Healey a well known Canadian musician had battled cancer his whole life, having caused him to go blind at the age of one. The man was a highly acclaimed musician having played with such masters as B. B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Albert Collins and George Harrison.

He will be sorely missed.

He was amazing, I'm definitely going to have to look into him now

I have a club recording of "all along the watchtower", not the greatest quality, you can hear a chatter from the microphone or something. It's available on lime wire I believe. It's just an awesome song. Set aside 20 minute to just listen to it a couple times. It was on a free cd in a magazine. It's just an epic interpretation that just oozes Jeff from all sides.

He might end up being best known for his part in Road House, unfortunately. His 80's hits were all bluesy, but in the later part of that decade he started recording 20s-40s jazz. He had just recorded his first rock album in 8 years, Mess of Blues, which is out March 20 in Europe and April 22 in the States.

Are you saying there's something wrong with blues?

I've just been hearing him referred to as blues/jazz player, and all I've seen is blues so far. I'm far more interested in the implications of his odd technical style on jazz than anything blues-related.
