Percy Heath.

Percy Heath died on thursday. He was the last surviving member of the Modern Jazz Quartet. I saw the Quartet in late 1988. A few things struck me that night: The concert was completely unamplified. The only way I could tell if John Lewis was improvising was when he was humming along with his playing. And that Percy Heath never stopped smiling. A few years later, on Charlie Parker Day, I got to take a picture.
