P.S. At the end of every year, we put together a short (and frankly incomplete) playlist to honor some of the giants who passed in the previous year.

It’s a bittersweet project.

Sorrow at the loss of such great souls…Joy in the appreciation of what beautiful gifts they made to all of us with their lives.

Join Jazz on the Tube fans around the world in celebrating and honoring these great artists – and please share the link.

Thanks and Happy New Year!
