RIP Steve Hiett, a few souvenirs from my visit chez lui

Steve Hiett’s sought-after Down On The Road By The Beach reissued for the first time

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I am so sad to hear of the passing of Steve Hiett. I have great memories of when David Herman and I visited him at his apartment with the intention to have him perform at ASVOFF in 2016. Here are a few images and videos from our visit.

Love the photo of Steve in 1959 and one of his iconic photos and of course the best a message to him from Charlie Watts with a photo of Earl Bostic.

RIP my friend.
