Doug Raney (August 29, 1956 - May 1, 2016).

Maurice Summerfield has kindly, and sadly, drawn my belated attention to the death of guitarist Doug Raney. Son of American guitar legend Jimmy Raney, Doug recorded with Kenny Barron, Joey DeFrancesco, Billy Hart, Duke Jordan, Jesper Lundgaard, Horace Parlan, Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen, Tomas Franck, Bernt Rosengren, and Chet Baker among others, immigrating to Denmark in 1977
He was 59.
Rest In Peace.
Lance.
