Sad news this morning that one of Canada's leading jazz enthusiasts and a passionate oral historian of music in Montreal has died.
Len Dobbin was involved in the world of jazz from his teens in the early '50s, and helped document the vibrant Montreal scene through photos, radio programs and print articles over six decades.
Always ready with a warm hug and a wry story from the jazz world, Len was one of a kind.
He died in hospital early today after suffering a stroke Wednesday night at Montreal's Upstairs Jazz Club, which he represented as a publicist.
You will be missed, my friend.
