    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but 80s "young lion" Roy Hargrove passed away of a heart attack brought on by kidney failure on Nov.2nd. He followed in the tradition of Miles Davis(and also Herb Alpert) by combining jazz with contemporary sounds; in Roy's case hip-hop. He won 2 grammys one of which combined the sounds of Latin America/Cuba with jazz(much like what Herb did with mariachi music.)

    A beloved favorite in the NYC jazz scene, he will definitely be missed. RIP Roy,you will be missed.
