RIP legendary audio engineer Rudy Van Gelder, 91

The article states (correctly) that Van Gelder "helped define the sound of jazz on record". His list of credits would be far too long to name but it's a solid bet that a lot of your favorite albums would be on it. RIP

How many great, not just good, lp's did he leave his mark on?  Over 200, maybe 500.
He was a giant.

just picked up 12 albums at an estate sale over the weekend, including Wes Montgomery's A Day in the Life, and yes, it was a Creed Taylor production, arranged by Don Sebesky but it has Van Gelder on the run out circle.  God knows how many fabulous albums just those three people are responsible for.
