Thanks, Jack - I didn't realize he had just passed away. I loved his version of "Blackbird," and apparently so did Sir Paul.

They don't make 'em like that any more. What a guy!

Thanks, Jack. Exquisite tribute.

Inspired me to look around a little more. Found this nice youtube piece, which includes a recent private interview and an impromptu a cappella performance of the first song he wrote (with his first wife), a lullaby for his first child --


Liner note:

Kenny Rankin, who was one my my best friends passed away on Sunday June 7, 2009. We in Indonesia, his Fans, Java Jazz Festival and I personally mourn the passing away of this Legend. Tears were in my eyes, when I spoke to Kenny last, around 3 (three) weeks ago. I am lucky to have recorded Kenny in a private event, a Video that was never released. Here is "Black Bird:" Kenny we in Indonesia will always remember you, the good times we had together and the support you have given us in Indonesia. sadly , Peter Gontha - Family and Friends,
