in memoriam

So many …
So many years of true friendship, respect and trust …
So many “Happy Birthday muttafukka” (his on November 2, mine on November 10) …
So many projects together: The Sax Machine (with Gary Bartz, Charles McPherson and Jesse Davis), the “Celebration Big Band”, “Bird with strings … and more”, “Our Man Benny” (Carter) with the Barcelona Jazz Orchestra, and endless quartet and quintet gigs …
So many great meals together … (no wine, please) …
So many common friends and partners who are no longer with us: Benny Carter (who introduced us!) Ray Brown, Hank Jones, NHØP, Cedar Walton, Johnny Griffin, Dizzy Gillespie, Clark Terry …
So many great conversations (politics, poetry, and music, music, music …)
So many great moments to remember and so many reasons NOT to forget.
Goodbye, my man Phil.
Love ya, Jordi
