Ian was an accomplished songwriter and frequent contributor to these forums. He slipped in the shower and died instantly.

R.I.P. Ian.

Thanks for listening and, especially, commenting. I often cite you as an example of how music should be interpreted and sung. You're a natural, Scotty.

Yes, these forums were silenced at the news of Ian's death.

Always a good listen, Don. I remember Ian. He was still here when I first got here... sad.

This a great tribute to Ian. Your choice in RTs and mix is super.

I miss Ian a lot. I used to collaborate with him quite frequently and because to his hearing loss problem he ran all of his songs bye me prior to posting. Plus we were both avid hockey fans, he the Ottawa Senators and me the Buffalo Sabres. Off course they were arch enemies on the ice. We were going to Ottawa to meet him, he was going to be our guide, but unfortunately he pass just before we could arrange everything.

Thanx for sharing this and bringing back some super and sad memories of my friend Ian.

Sonny, Floyd, Mario, David,

You can't imagine how I needed your encouragement and support.

You have made me want to 'Barney Fife' up my sagging skivvies and jump back into my music.

A sincere thank you.

Donny

Nice song! Very well conceived and produced. I don't think I remember Ian. What a tragic story. Life is so fragile. Thanks for posting Don. Take care. Greg

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
