Buddy Collette, 89*

WORD IS trickling out that Buddy‘s gone. More when I find the words. A special, elegant, giving man. L.A.-loyal to the end.

* UPDATE: Oh, so it is true. He passed away yesterday, September 19, 2010. The jazz station here, KKJZ has a lovely remembrance up. I’ll miss going to Nibbler’s with Buddy where “every seat is a booth,” and thus a comfy hideaway for telling grand stories about L.A.’s golden age of jazz.
