The great recording engineer/sound artist Walter Quintus has passed away. I had the great privilege to work often with Walter over the past 8 years, on my "Black Hawk Dance," "Landscape Scripture," and "Winter Light" albums and also on my upcoming "Live in Munich" concert film of my quartet. Walter was a brilliant, incredibly kind, generous man, and a dear friend with a heart of gold. My condolences to his wife and son. Enjoy the next part of your wonderful journey, Walter. Thank you for everything.
