RIP Dennis Farnon

Tony Roberts sent me the sad news that Dennis Farnon had passed on. Whilst I was familiar with his elder brother Bob Farnon who made many contributions to both jazz and light music - his album with Sinatra is a gem - I knew little of his younger sibling. However, as this Wiki link reveals, he too had an equally rewarding career - film and tv soundtracks - not to mention being part of the group that inaugurated the Grammy Awards.

The legend that was Dennis Farnon passed away on May 31, aged 95.
Rest In Peace.
