One of millions, sent in by reader / photographer John Herr:
I didn’t think Jake Hanna was susceptible to death. He was too large a personality. I remember at the Atlanta Jazz Party a few years ago, when Bob Wilber was leading a set, the soprano saxophonist turned to Hanna for a solo, and Jake exclaimed, “I just took one. Pay attention!” and went on with his time-keeping.
He’ll rock the boat when they row him across to the other side.
