Richard Cook R.I.P.

I found this sad message in the mail this morning :

"Those who enjoy the work of British jazz writer Richard Cook will be
saddened to learn that he died this morning after a battle with cancer.
Richard will be best remembered for his work on the journal Jazz Review and
for the series of books........The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings.......he co-wrote with his good friend Brian Morton.
Richard Cook was just 50. "

Miles Davis on WNYC

Got this in the mailbox and maybe of interest to you :


"WNYC radio will broadcast program with special guests Gregory Davis and Richard Cook, where they will delve into the work and personal life of jazz genius, Miles Davis on Friday, March 2 at 2:00 PM Eastern time.


Richard Cook, editor of the leading British jazz magazine, the Jazz Review, and author of It's About That Time: Miles Davis On and Off Record, along with Gregory Davis, the music legend's son and author of Dark Magus: The Jekyll and Hyde Life of Miles Davis, and Soundcheck host John Schaefer will allow listeners an in-depth portrait of Miles Davis. From his relationship with Charlie Parker to drug abuse and his often violent personality, the debate is not one to be missed by both enthusiasts and those new to jazz alike.
