MR. BLACKWELL

Mr. Reggie Blackwell died suddenly and unexpectedly this past week. He was a longtime Tender Mercies staff member, and an artist, among many other things. His encyclopedic memory of jazz recordings sent many a dilettante to the library in search of some CD they had never heard of before Reggie told them about it . We are diminished by his absence. And we are fortunate to have known him.
