    I'm a jazz pianist, and Don influenced my music in many ways… even more so, he influenced the way I see the world and have chosen to live in it…RIP Captain…and much love for the new journey!

    A very sad day. Don was an inspiration and will be sorely missed. I just hope he gets the recognition he deserved when alive. Goodbye Don and thanks.
