Sad news: Jeff Healey died of cancer on Sunday.

Jeff, who was blind, first became famous for playing electric blues guitar, holding it across his lap. He had always been an avid collector of old jazz 78’s, and released two superb ‘revivalist’ traditional jazz albums in recent years, where he played the trumpet and guitar.

He leaves behind his wife and two children. News stories at Reuters and on the Jeff Healey website.
