Sad news: Lee Jeske, a jazz writer who could be laugh-out-loud funny, died last weekend, very unexpectedly. Jeske, based in NYC, was an early JJA member and friend to many in the organization; he's credited on AllMusic.com with having penned liner notes for 93 albums; he was a columnist for the New York Post and Cashbox magazine, as well as a contributor to DownBeat and JVC program guides. Here's a photo by David Gahr of him (at left) with Ornette Coleman and writer-record producer Jeff Levenson, at Gracie Mansion (the Mayor's home) during a JVC party in 1990. Lee, we already miss you.
