    Jazz lost one of its great ambassadors today. Renowned jazz pianist Harold Mabern passed today at 83. He was a regular up at Smoke in NY and saw him perform many time.
    Attending Douglass and then Manassas High School, Mabern belonged to an unparalleled generation of Memphis jazz musicians.

    Twitter is full of fond remembrances. He seems to have been a kind and gentle soul.

      I read the news at the WWOZ site, right after I saw your "Afro Blue" post yesterday.
