    If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

          Indeed, RIP to one of the greats. He got to read his own obituaries a few months back, as I recall. Not many of us can say that.

            Giant. One of my alltime favorite jazz composer and bandleaders, a major Blue Note act and he apparently started The Jazz Messengers w Art Blakey. So many great tunes and albums.

            A shame someone made the mistake of falsely publishing his obituary a few months ago. Must have felt a little morbid at that age.

                    I was lucky enough to catch the man live at Ronnie's twice in the late 80s - fantastic.

                    RIP Horace.

                      Horace played a vocal version of "the Cape Verdean blues" at one of these gigs - re-titled "samba carribean" - thought I'd imagined it but it seems it was real:



                      There was a decent/in depth obit here (unlike the grauniad's perfunctory attempt):
