I was hoping this headline wouldn't arrive so soon. I only became familiar with Dennis' playing recently, with Matt Wilson's Arts & Crafts and the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra. With Wilson he demonstrated some pretty solid clarinet playing, in addition to his bass work. I'm going to check out those '90s Scofield records again. May he rest in peace.
As always, a beautiful tribute from Ethan; video at The Jazz Clinic; more links via Darcy.
