  2. I offer my condolences to Jackie's family and friends.
    He was a great man, and I feel honored to have had the chance to know him and even jam with him on one or two occasions back in the 70's.
    He was a very sweet man, and a living encyclopedia of Jazz and Blues, I learned from him about stage composure, and tips on playing rhythm guitar.
    Rest in peace Jackie.
