I'm sorry to hear this. He was a very nice man who really knew how to tell a story with his horn. I'm glad that HighNote documented his later work. 

David graciously agreed to do a Before & After with me in 2003:


> It is with great sadness that I let you all know that David Newman succumbed to pancreatic cancer yesterday.
> A kind and gentle man, and a heck of a sax player, he will be missed by many.  More information will follow.
