    Jerry Granelli RIP

    It might be easy to write Granelli off as the drummer on the Peanuts theme, but his recorded output shows that he was anything but stuck in a rut, and that he was consistently challenging himself by making some fantastic sounding music during the last three decades. He worked with a wide range of ensemble combinations. I hadn't really listened to him before the Another Place record which came out in the mid 90's. It was sonically and musically brilliant and one of many criminally overlooked releases from a very fertile period that was pretty rich with high quality post FZ jazz influenced stuff.

    His album, A Song I Thought I Heard Buddy Sing, is an old favorite. Features Bill Frisell, Robben Ford, Julian Priester, Kenny Garrett, and Anthony Cox. RIP

    Damn, I was a huge fan. Saw him a number of times and particularly enjoyed Sandhills Reunion, A Song I Thought I Heard Buddy Sing, News From the Street, Broken Circle and Dance Hall. Met him a couple times too, and he was a lovely guy. I'm going to miss him in a big way.

    For anyone interested:

    RIP, Jerry.....
