Guest Book Highlights

August 30, 2016 "You don't see music giants like this anymore, the mold was broken with Mr. Van Gelder. His ironic sound will live on." - Music Lover
August 30, 2016 "I will miss you Rudy and our discussions about acoustics, digital audio and Amateur Radio...and adjusting to "getting older."

Thanks for your friendship through the years and your preservation of audio purity. The audio and music community will miss you greatly...but we won't miss your driveway!

May you now rest in the Peace of Christ, my friend.

Ed Wolfrum" - Edward Wolfrum (Royal Oak, MI)
August 29, 2016 "This man was a GIANT. I certainly hope that the powers that be in the recording industry see to it that his memory is given the honor it certainly deserves. Without George Martin, The Beatles might have been just another rock and roll band. Without Rudy Van Gelder an entire Genre (which stands as America's greatest art form) might have been severely shortchanged. R.I.P. Mr.Van Gelder.There aren't adequate words to thank you for what you achieved." - Dan Dinoto (Worcester, MA)
August 29, 2016 "You made the music that was the essence of my youth. You were always a part of the best in jazz recording. May your memory be a blessing." - Marty Cohen (Indianapolis, IN)
August 29, 2016 "Rest in Peace" - Scott Chamberland (St.Agatha, ME)
