Very sad. Great artist, and Return to Forever (w/ Stanley Clarke, Lenny White and others) was an outstanding band.

i was stunned to hear this news over the radio just a few minutes ago while driving him
i just saw him in concert only about a year and a half ago at sfjazz center - it was a brilliant show with a young trio and he was totally engaged, vibrant and chatty as always -- what a wonderful person and spirit
so sad to hear he passed - his talent was enormous, he was kind, accessible and positive, and he helped launch so many young artists into the jazz world
