Oh man...one of the greatest arranger/composers...period...not just jazz. His influence on Maria Schneider is unmistakable. "New Works" on Challenge I believe was a masterpiece. Another sleeper in my view was by vocalist Helen Schneider...her "Right As the Rain" CD with Brookmeyer doing the arranging. What a great loss indeed. R.I.P.

Word has come on another news group, that Bob Brookmeyer died last night, most likely of heart failure. More information is sure to follow.

Always at a loss for words at these times,
