Rashied Ali, R.I.P.

Dang! Only got the news today - attending Øya usually means I have very little time reading news online, and I've yet to read a word about Ali in a Norwegian paper. Rashied Ali is probably best known as the drummer for John Coltrane in the '60s, but he played on plenty of other great records as well, with Touchin' On Trane with William Parker and Charles Gayle a personal favorite.

Some nice words for Ali over at Do the Math.
