Dick Sudhalter R.I.P

Dick Sudhalter; cornetist and author of an excellent, if somewhat long winded, tome on Bix passed away recently. I recollect seeing him in concert at the People's Theatre sometime in the dim and distant past. Not surprisingly, he based his cornet style on Bix; his musical phrases, more succinct than his literary ones, fell easily on the ear and mainstreamers and dixielanders will mourn his passing.
Once again I'm indebted to Russell, my contact from beyond the grave.
