Jazz Pianist Hilton Ruiz Dead at 54

The sad news reached the jazz community yesterday of jazz piano great Hilton Ruiz's untimely passing after being injured in a fall in New Orleans in May.

Please listen to some of his wonderful music sometime in the next few days as a way remembering how much joy he was able to give us through his musical gifts during his time on earth.
