How many kids heard him through Schoolhouse Rock? :cool:

I loved his jazz vocal/piano albums. I have his first album "Devil My Care" (fantastic album) from 1957 and the newest I have is "Too much coffee man" from 2000. And his vocal on Miles Davis's "Blue Xmas" makes it one of my favorite Christmas songs.

I saw Bob in a small jazz club near Union Square (New York City) in 1994 or 1995. Fantastic show. And he was the nicest, down to earth guy. Hung around with the audience between sets and after the show. I had a long conversation with him about our common connections to Lubbock, Texas (he grew up in West Texas).

Bob was something special.
