Ten Years Memory of Ahmet Ertegun: 1923-2006

It's been just about ten years...ten long years since we lost "the greatest record man of all time". Many others have fallen since then, as just this week we woke to find that Greg Lake had passed on. So tonight, in memory of Ahmet's passing on December 14, 2006 and in memory of his legacy of music that today is being newly discovered by many around the globe...we look back, we look forward and we say thank you, Mr. Ahmet Ertegun. One dream, so fully lived...

Ahmet at the Lenox Lounge, Harlem. My favorite picture of him.
