 " Jazz pianist, composer Hank Jones dies at 91 in NY "

NEW YORK – Jazz pianist and composer Hank Jones, whose 70-year career included a stint as Ella Fitzgerald's pianist and Marilyn Monroe's accompanist when she sang "Happy Birthday" to President John F. Kennedy, has died, his manager said Monday. He was 91.

Jones, who won a Grammy lifetime achievement award last year and received the National Medal of Arts from President George W. Bush in 2008, died Sunday night at a New York hospital after a brief illness, Jean-Pierre Leduc said.

A tireless musician who performed his blend of swing and bebop until the end, Jones came from a family of jazz musicians who included brothers Thad, a trumpeter, composer and arranger, and Elvin, a drummer known for the polyrhythmic beat that propelled John Coltrane's classic quartet.

Thank you for the pic Higgy! I will get a six pack on Fraiday night and listen to some Dio vinyl and give him my proper farewell. I grew up listening to Dio.

That is sad news.  I loved 'Diff'rent Strokes' .    It was so funny and his "Whatchoo talkin bout?"  always made me laugh.   He was far too young.

RIP Gary

Not unexpected about Hopper, but sad, all the same. The Times noted it in a blog post, but they don't have the obituary up yet.

Here's a link to Dennis Hopper's obituary in the New York Times:

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/30/movies/30hopper.html

It mentions that Hopper had a small part in one Clint Eastwood film, Hang 'Em High.

So sad to learn that news today ...

I remember him as the photographer in "Apocalypse Now", and young man in "Giant" with James Dean,  and of course in the "cultissime" "Easy Rider".

RIP Mr Hopper.

Wow, RIP Mr. Garrett and Mr. Hopper.  Dennis Hopper had a small role in Gunfight At The O.K. Corral but he was very good in it.

 " Louise Bourgeois, Influential Sculptor, Dies at 98 "

    By HOLLAND COTTER

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/01/arts/design/01bourgeois.html?src=mv&ref=arts

   
Quote
Louise Bourgeois, the French-born American artist who gained fame only late in a long career, when her psychologically charged abstract sculptures, drawings and prints had a galvanizing effect on the work of younger artists, particularly women, died on Monday in Manhattan, where she lived. She was 98.
