I had a feeling this was coming because we hadn't heard anything for two years. How terrible! He was so great. I'm going to watch the Chick Corea 'Three Quartets' DVD from Rendezvous in New York now. One of his last great performances it would seem. Very SAD.

Sad. I read at one link where he was only 57 years old.


I vaguely remember a story from a friend of mine who called him up (out of the blue) asking a question re a transcription. MB was most gracious and generous with his time and helped my friend out.


I also learned from that link that he came from Philadelphia.

No guitarists were harmed during the making of this message.


In general, harmonic complexity is inversely proportional to the ratio between chording and non-chording instruments.
