Arthur Lyman 1 of 10 March 19, 02
Having come to jazz through Ahmad Jamal at age14,it was a pleasant surprise to hear "Love for Sale" on the am radio station I listened to.In those days before tyrannical tight programming it wasn't unusual to hear Arthur along with the rock and roll of that time.Finding his music wasn't easy in central Illinois.His music was fresh like a warm summer rain,washing over his listeners and creating interest in this new enrgy so unlike anything I had heard before. In Arthurs' passing we can only hope he was aware of how great his music influenced so many. Play on.
