Artie Shaw

Somewhat off topic, but Artie Shaw - the great bandleader and clarinetist, died today. He was 94. If you haven't heard him and his orchestra play, run out and get his Self Portrait Anthology. I was simply astonished when I heard it the first time - particularly disk two. This guy rocked before there was rock.
