Unfortunately it was I believe, a Heart attack thanks to her abundant tastes for things she should not have partook in.
She was a great player, and I felt a great writer, a better writer then a player... not to take away from her playing. A bigger complement to her writing I suppose.
That JM disc sounds interesting and if I was really into his playing then I probably would be chomping at the bit to get it. Right now I'm just restlessly waiting a chance to borrow it perhaps from a friend of mine who lives and breathes all thinks John Mc. I would be moritified if he did not have it.
I'm not sure if anyone mentioned it or not but there's a pretty good Joe Pass hot licks vid where he talks about chord sub and solo chording over I VI ii V progressions. Since Joe is not an overly complex guy it is really easy to understand, crystal clear. The Sound sucks on any copy I have watched but he gives a lot of cool ideas just about such a simple subject as how to sub out I VI ii V progressions.
