I was surprised to be able to reach him by phone a few years ago. He was very humble about his achievements. Peace to him and all. Merry Christmas.

A giant, probably the last one.
One of the great innovators, with Roland Kirk and Sun Ra.
A door opener, a mind opener.
Rest in Peace Brother and eternal gratitude for your beautiful music.
