R.I.P Jimmy Guiffre

I just happened to put on my DVD of "Jazz on a Summer's Day" yesterday ... and the kids started jumping around to the opening track... (here on youtube for your listening pleasure).
I found out who Jimmy Guiffre was 5 mins before i found out that he was dead- he died last week. I guess i just missed him! This is a song called "The Train and the River".
The film is a documentary of the 1958 Newport jazz Festival... up until yesterday my favourite part was actually the cellist smoking in a dark room and playing Bach. That and Anita O'Day.
