Jazz critic and author Nat Hentoff passed today.

Family said he passed comfortably, listening to Billie Holliday. Good taste always.

You've probably read magazine articles and liner notes of his if youve bought more than just a few jazz LP's.

There's a good article/obit on Nat Hentoff  by David Reaboi in The Federalist.  David writes on national security issues but is also an audiophile and jazz lover.

I enjoyed reading his great liner notes when I was a kid discovering jazz.

91, WTG.  Sorry I'm a bit late to this wake ;)

Used to read him when I actually lived in Greenwich Village.
