In Memoriam

It is always so sad when such a bright star, such a genuine and sincere talent, dies at a young age. Collin Walcott should've turned 64 today. Unfortunately he was killed in a traffic accident while on tour with Oregon in East Germany in 1984. You may recall Collin from his days with The Paul Winter Consort.

I often saw him perform with Oregon.

His magnificent sitar and tabla playing graced the recordings of:

Miles Davis
Larry Coryell
Don Cherry
Egberto Gismonti
Dave Liebman
Meredith Monk
Jim Pepper
and many others...

We miss you Collin.
