Lawrence Lucie (1907-2009)

Jazz guitarist Lawrence Lucie passed away earlier this week. I wish I could say for certain, but I do think that I once had the pleasure of shaking his hand when he appeared on one of Phil Schaap's radio programs on WKCR.

The following from his obituary struck me:
He began studying banjo, mandolin and violin at an early age and played in a band led by his father.
It looks like he could have been in a bluegrass band!
