|Think about where U may have met Jimmy for the first time...
it will be a pleasant memory - wherever it was.
Did it happen during a Barry Harris workshop?
Where were U when you first met Jimmy?
Did you ever forget it?
I never didn't.
Loved Jimmy's person,
his being-ness and great humanity
and solid presence in the music.
Jimmy made it all smooth and easy.
Grace - he had it.
Jimmy - that spirit, the joy,
all the uncanny you pulled it all together.
I know I will miss you.
Loved you very much, my man.
Rest In Peace. From the heart, Becky Friend (jazz musician/singer)
