Alan,,,,,just learned of Karl's passing. He was a wonderful loving and fun man. He was a cornerstone in my life. Grew to share his love of jazz. I was so fortunate to have met and shared life with him for 7 years. I know how much you loved him. Please share my condolences with your sisters and rest of family.

i knew karl since the 1960s as an avid jazz fan who knew the history, people, and styles in the music. he would attend most jazz events in the berkshires and sit in the front row, making the musicians want to play intensely with his reactions to the music.

he was known by many jazz legendary figures, including pianist randy weston, who played in the berkshires many times. i remember karl trading fours with randy's group at avaloch inn in lenox.

karl was respected by all the berkshire jazz community and he gave a vibe that lifted the music up and made everyone ready to swing. we were lucky to have known karl.

we dedicate our music to you, karl, and send all our love, until we meet again.

here is a poem i wrote woith some words from the hopi people of southwest native america:

HOPI PRAYER FROM OUR ANCESTORS, FOR OUR ANCESTORS

hopi people of southwest native america and royal hartigan 1999


do not stand at my grave and weep, i am not there i do not sleep

i am a thousand perkshire winter winds that blow, i am the diamond glints on snow

i am the summer's sun on the ripened grain, i am the gentle autumn's rain

i am harvest leaves of red and orange and gold, i am the life force of all beings, great and small, fleeting and eternal, young and old

i am mountain meadows of brown and tan and green, i am the inner secret shadow spirits of all things, visible and unseen

i am the dawning dew in may's blooming mist, i am the heartbeat of your dreams kissed

i am the sounds of jazz scatting, music and dance and song from up on high, i am the clouds in an endless sky

when you awaken in the morning's quiet hush, i am the swift uplifting rush of birds in circled flight

i am the soft stars that shine on a moonlit night

so do not stand at my grave and cry, i am not there, i did not die

____________


and as before, karl, wherever you go we are with you near or far, and wherever we walk on the paths of this long cold night of life without you, you are right here with us, inside our hearts

a mirror for each others' souls through time and space we are one, and someday yet again we will be whole as we awaken together in the evening's midnight sun,

as we awaken together in the evening's midnight sun

and we'll dance with spirits deep, sing the whole way through,

we'll laugh at life's old ills, and to each other be true, as we awaken together in the evening's midnight sun

in the evening's midnight sun

we are one,karl

we are one

we are one

allone

allone

all beyond


forever

So sorry to read about Karl's passing. I so remember him from back in the '50's. He did so much for our youth group at the Lutheran Church. Condolences go to the family.
