Very sad. I know he'd still been very active touring w/ Azymuth recently. What happened?

A sad, sad loss, RIP José Roberto Bertrami, you will be sorely missed, but your wonderful genius will be here for ever.

Writerguy, not sure - I looked at a translation of a Portugese news article, which said he'd been ill in hospital for some weeks before he died.

I hate to ask this question here but I am looking for an album that is only a solo Rhodes without any accompaniment. Something a little over driven rooted in the blues. Any suggestions?

Thanks

what the hell, why I am hearing about this via your blog? I mean, I hold you in the highest esteem but I would have thought I'd heard it elsewhere.. My head`s kind of been in the sand lately, though

¡Qué lástima! Otro grande que se va... Inconfundible toque de Rhodes el suyo. Me entero buscando algún nuevo trabajo suyo...
Paz para él y su familia.

Una pérdida irreparable, un legado eterno, un amigo desconocido, entrañable que nos deja una herencia preciosa. Paz para él, y para la gente que lo amó que aún camina por este mundo. Rodrigo Septién
