Subject: VIDEO: Herb



Although we were all prepared, I must say that the passing of Herb Pomeroy
comes as terrible news and with a huge feeling of loss.


I won't go into my personal relationship with him, but suffice it to say
that he was a mentor who had a profound impact on my teaching and
understanding the delicate balance of personal integrity and jazz music.


As a celebration of his life and music, I immediately began the editing of
video I had begun preparing for the IAJE jazzhistorydatabase.com web site.


The video work was completed and posted last night and is available publicly
now at the IAJE / WPI jazz history web site:




Please pass this information on to anyone you think is interested in Herb's
life and music, and feel free to link to it from other sites.


Thank you.
