two in one

Yesterday, I was surprised to learn, upon his death aged 84, that Duke Jordan had still been alive.

Today, I was surprised to learn that Miguel Anga Diaz had died, only 45 years old. I first heard him on Orishas's debut album back in 2000, then on Buena Vista-affiliated stuff. I saw him give a good concert with Omar Sosa late last year. Their encore duet was a highlight.
