Grammys and Emmys 1 of 2
Todd S. Jenkins May 16, 08
When I wrote the obit, I forgot to mention that Bob tallied a total of sixteen Grammy nominations throughout his career, as well as carrying home two Emmys for his work on specials by Linda Lavin and Julie Andrews. I only had the fortune to meet Bob once, when he played the Mammoth Lakes Jazz Jubilee with Kim Richmond. He was very kind, quiet and yet engaging, and his musicianship was phenomenal. I expect that Bob will exert the kind of influence on future big-band arrangers that Bill Holman exerted on Bob himself. Quite a loss.
