Vince Guaraldi . . . probably the true origin for my love of jazz, since he wrote all the music for the Peanuts. Who didn't love those holiday specials? And, the skating song?! Man, we all have good memories to his music, right? But, he wrote a TON of non-Peanuts related music that was absolutely beautiful. Look him up, find his other stuff. You won't regret it.
Dave Brubeck You will be missed by us all. A great jazz pianist and a fabulous composer at 91 he was still a hero of mine. Thank you for everything you have taught this world and your work will never be forgotten. David Brubeck.
