Listening to John Coltrane’s “Love Supreme” , brought back some of my fondest memories of Andrew. Among those I treasure most are his annual April “gigs” at Blues Alley, his prolific correspondence ( always with a quirky little personal note) and , above all, the times spent at “ Villa Musica” and
“ Villa Pablina” with him and Jocelyne. They were both incredible hosts and always “shared” generously of their brillant artistic gifts. I feel truly blessed that our paths crossed.

Though Andrew’s passing represents a profound loss to us all, I know that the “star “ of this exceptional artist will continue to “shine”, that he’ll live on in our collective memory and be sorely missed.
By far my most lasting memory and the one that I will always hold most dear is the hour I was able to spend visiting with Andrew on November 8, at the window of his room in his Assisted Living Home, the Sunday before his passing.
Gracious, witty, nostalgic....brimming with stories from his storied past is the Andrew that I will remember and cherish always.

My heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends.

Mr. White was my next door neighbor and friend for more than 40 years and I will miss him dearly. During the most recent months during his recovery he shared many stories and we laughed often.
Rest in heavenly peace Andrew, Sonny as your friends and family called you. But, you will always be the famous "Mr. White" my neighbor and friend. My sincere condolences and uplifting prayers to the family and friends.
