RIP Sonny Fortune.

Dave Brownlow has drawn my attention to the death of saxophonist Sonny Fortune who passed away on October 25. I never actually heard him live although recordings indicate that, although he was at the forefront of contemporary playing, he was also at home in straight ahead sessions.
There's a comprehensive obituary in the New York Times.
He was 79.
RIP.
Lance.
