Still missing you Humpie.
Never forget you.

Humphrey is and was a brother,
Now, May 12, 2019, I am playing "Dawn" in remembrance of Humphrey. I would travel to New Orleans, check in the Hotel, and head to Bourban Street to find where Humphrey and the Band were playing. I would hang there the whole night with the band and then on after the show. Now I am up in the Rocky Mountains at 69 years old and still loving Humphrey's music. Please stay in touch. I would love to hear from the band and any of Humphrey's...

Can't add much more than already I've said....our loss of a solid jazz sax, vocalist, and great artist in every respect. Play on Bro.....

Humphrey was one of the kindest most caring people I have ever known. Nobody could play the sax like he did. Sometimes I put on his music, sit back, close my eyes and am transported to an amazing place.
RIP Humphrey you are sorely missed.

Happy Birthday my man. Time to dig out the CD you gave me on my honeymoon in N.O. 2005. Two Leos and tenors in common....my BD comes Friday.

Play well son.......

I remember listening to Humphrey play is amazing music when I first arrived in New Orleans. He was also a wonderful, gentle, kind, caring man. I listen to his music and feel his presence with me every time I do so.

Humphrey was my brother. When I would come to N.O., starting in the 80s, I would go hear the band play. Humphrey was a classic. I believe he is in heaven and we all will see and hear him again. Smitty

I was just going through some of my old cassettes and found one by Humphrey. Each time I was in New Orleans I would find him and totally enjoy his music. I actually tried to get him a record deal but wasn't adept at that. When I found the cassette I googled him and was so happy to see all of his accomplishments. At the same time, I was sad for his passing and for the loss of those he left behind. I can picture him playing in heaven will all of his idols - and they enjoying playing with him. RIP

I just heard and am devastated. I heard him play when I was in New Orleans in 2002 and loved his tone and style.
