Ray Conniff died a few days ago. I was on the website stiffs.com to see the latest quips about celebrities who have entered the great beyond, and I saw that Conniff had passed on. While not familiar with a lot of his work, I think I may have heard a few tunes by him. Since I'm a fan of all music made up to (I'd say) 1994, I would definitely say I would listen to this man's material. Sadly, he's gone. R.I.P... Sincerely, John Kilduff... I enjoy insturmentals of all sorts.
