His voice was the soundtrack of my high school days. My friends and I still, so many decades later, know every buttery nuance of every song on his Silver Morning album. And his jazz stylings just knock me out. I share the heartache of his departure. Thank you, Kenny, for what you shared with us all.

Today is October 2, 2014 and I am finding out that Kenny died over 5 years ago. I was fortunate to see Kenny play at the Main Point in Bryn Mawr, PA in 1975 and again in Ft. Lauderdale, FL in 1985. I completely admired his style of music and was happy to relay that to him during a break at his show in Ft. Lauderdale and that his music, 'got me through college'. I remember that he was happy to hear that and I believe he was a real genuine man, no airs-he simply loved his craft and loved hearing from his fans. Blessing Kenny.

I discovered Kenny Rankin in 1976 and I am 62 years of age and still consider him my very best singer of all time. His passing saddens me as if I lost a close famiy member, how many times was his album playing as I celebrated my life, or suffered and mourned a loss. Kenny became the soundtrack of my life, and his voice will forever be etched in my heart. Susan Pistilli Orlando Florida God Bless and know you are missed but your voice lives on.

I was so sad to learn today that Kenny Rankin died in 2009. I was curious to see if he was doing a tour, and read the news. I first heard him in 1978, on an LP. I've loved his voice and guitar playing ever since. I was fortunate enough to see him in the early 80's at a small venue in San Diego, called "The Bachannal", and then at a Jazz Festival in San Diego in 1990. So sorry he's gone.

I remember where I was when I heard Kenny passed away. I was in Times Square at the Iridium and told the bartender he passed and he said "wow, no way". Jose Feliciano was standing in for Les Paul and the news spread quick. He was well loved. My sister loved Kenny's music too and I got a good friend at WNOP Radio to have Kenny sign an album for my sister that said "Happy Birthday" and Kenny did this with a smile. What a talent, what a heart and I cant help but think what a humanitarian he was when listening to "The Fall". RIP Kenny, you are still loved and your music will never die.

I lost my best friend Octavio when I was 20, I remember that I gave him the K.R. Album (with Don Costa´s orchestra) days before his car accident during the night of the 24th of December, while he was driving from Mexico City to the US. At that time he was in a very sad mood because his first love relationship was over; he told me that the album was his best companion during that special period of his lifetime, that was about to end. Kenny´s soft voice, his lyrics and intimate music arrangements, have always awaken the best of me, I' am sure it did the same for him, this gift was the best for him.
