Many of you may have heard already of the passing of Oliver Morgan, one of New Orleans's unique singers and entertainers. I'm off to New Orleans this weekend. You can read his obit here. I plan on doing another post on Oliver coming up. Feel free to search the archives for my previous one 'til then. Just put his name in the search blog box above.
Also, I just heard last night that master jazz saxophonist Earl Turbinton, brother of Willie Tee, passed away yesterday after a long illness. I plan on doing a post featuring Earl soon, also.
My respects and condolences go out the the friends and family of the departed. The were both class acts and contributed much to the musical fabric of their hometown. They will be missed.
