R.I.P. "Specs" Powell

I received this email a few days ago:

Please be advised that  Gordon "Specs" Powell passed on  September 15, 2007 in San Marcos, alifornia. He passed due to  kidney failure and the complications thereof.
The Grove Dictionary of Jazz lists Powell as playing with Edgar Hayes   (1939), Eddie South (1939-40), John Kirby (1941-42), Benny Carter  (1942), and Ben Webster (1940) and at CBS with Raymond Scott.
He also recorded with Benny Goodman, Red Norvo, Joe Bushkin, Mildred Bailey,  Clyde Hart and Billie Holiday, etc.

R.I.P. Mr. Powell!
