I realized today that I had been remiss in failing to note in these pages the death of the guitarist Jeff Golub, who succumbed on January 1st, at the age of 59, to a rare and incurable brain disease.

I worked with Jeff for many years. He was a charming and intelligent man, and an enormously talented and tasteful musician. I was always delighted to see him at the studio door; he played on no recording that he did not adorn. He will be greatly missed.
