James Moody R.I.P.

James Moody passed away yesterday on December 9th. He was really one of the last links with the bebop generation. I had the oppportunity to see him live with Dizyy Gillespie's United Nations Orchestra at Jazz Middelheim in Antwerp.
Two obituaries already online : Jazztimes and ChicagoTribune.
