RIP Samuel Charters

Generally acknowledged as the greatest authority on American blues, folk and early jazz, Samuel Charters passed away yesterday. He was 85 (March 18). Along with his wife Ann, Charters wrote about, researched and recorded many famous bluesmen and women who had slipped into obscurity - creating an interest in and a revival of their careers. 
Sad news indeed.
