One of the great joys I have in writing this blog and preparing podcasts is the friendship that I sometimes strike up with jazz musicians. I am proud to say that Bob Belden was my friend, and it is with great sadness that I report his passing of a massive heart attack. He was 58.
I had spoken to Bob just a week ago, and recorded two lengthy podcawsts with him, about his trip to Iran and his new CD. And now he is gone.
It will take me a while to sort out my feelings about his passing, so in the meanwhile, here is a wonderful obit from Jazztimes.
I will miss Bob Belden.
