Phil Woods, R.I.P.

For decades this master of the alto sax has been amazing the world. Bird paved the way and Phil Woods picked up where Charlie Parker left off. He was a very dear friend and I will miss him. Thankfully he left us with much music and I will continue to treasure each note along with wonderful personal memories. If you’ve never heard him, sit back and enjoy.
