Thanks for that post, I didn't know he was ill, I only saw him at The Blue Note in NYC on June 3rd.

Listening to Lee with Bill Evans and others, Live at the Half Note sometime in the 70s, and reminiscing about his performance in Sydney around 1990 at the Real Ale Cafe with Paul Grabowsky and others, a memorable gig.
The guy is a legend, what a blower!
Thanks for letting us know of his battle and hoping we can hear plenty more of them beautiful licks.
