So Long, and Thanks For All The Music

It isn't ironic, but sad and a bit eerie, that one of my last posts before my vacation was about Elvin Jones, and then he died while we were on hiatus. This morning, albeit a week late, the Globe ran this fine obituary for him, taken from The Guardian. But I do wish we would write our own obituaries more often for non-Canadian luminaries, rather than relying on the British and American newswires - I'm sure our jazz critic Mark Miller could have done a superb job.
