RIP Kenny Drew Jr.

Pianist Kenny Drew Jr. passed away on August 3. I only heard him once, some years back (2007), at Sage Gateshead with the Mingus Big Band. I was impressed.
Although his father was a renowned pianist he claimed not to have been influenced by him - perhaps it was in the genes.
Whatever, Kenny Drew Jr. left a considerable recorded legacy.
Sadly missed.
He was 56 years old...
Obituary.
Lance.
