Prince Lasha R.I.P.

I got this email in my inbox this morning. It seems to me that 2008 is a hard year for all musicians, writers, actors haveing left us....

"I was just informed by a reliable source (John Handy) that the legendary flutist/saxophonist Prince Lasha passed away in Oakland, CA last night (Dec. 11). Many people will remember his own recordings (especially with Sonny Simmons) and his associations on records with Eric Dolphy, Elvin Jones and many others and in later years with Odean Pope. Lasha was born William Lawsha in Forth Worth, Texas on Sept. 10, 1929. Lasha (pronounced La-shay) went to school and was a boyhood friend of Ornette Coleman."
