RIP Hod O'Brien

Bebop pianist Hod O'Brien passed away peacefully at his home in Palmyra, Va aged 80.  An unfamiliar name to many yet revered as a legend by those who knew him as will be seen from this biography written whilst he was still alive and active. Rest In Peace.
Lance.
Thanks to Jack Goodwin for drawing Hod's death to my attention.
