Clare Fischer, R.I.P.

This show was posted last Fall when Clare Fischer celebrated his 83rd birthday on October 22, 2011. We wished him a very happy day and thanked him for all his musical gifts that he has given us. That thanks still applies! This is a gentleman who can be called a musical genius. He was way ahead of his time for many years. Give a listen and you’ll see what we mean.
