Sad to hear this news. I had the pleasure of working at the Elkhart Jazz
Festival (Indiana) where Eddie and Meredith performed several times.  He was
a gifted musician, but what stands out for me was how engaging he was.  The
festival was primarily staffed by volunteers, the audiences were just a
couple of feet from the stages, and Eddie made everyone feel at home.  

He will be missed and my heartfelt condolences go out to his family and close
