Subject: RE: Whatever happened to Dick Rosmini? (1936-1995)
I remember Dick (it must have been 1958) at someone's house in Connecticut, looking wasted but staying up later than anybody else but me. Great thrill picking with him, surrounded by all those bodies in sleeping bags on the floor. That night he sang "I'll Never Get Drunk Any More" ... first time I ever heard it. Magic.

I don't think I realized then just how rare his talent was. I got the impression he preferred to efface himself, didn't put himself forward, just waited till almost nobody was listening to deliver his majestic instrumentals.
