A magnificent scholar and record producer, and the author of great classics including The Latin Tinge
and Black Music of Two Worlds,
, and the founder of Original Music, John Storm Roberts passed away at the age of 73 back on Nov. 29. Few figures have had such a profoundly intertwined influence on both musical scholarship and popular musical culture.I was surprised to see he hadn't been memorialized on MeFi yet.
