Sad news that sax legend Manu Dibango passed away from the Covid-19 virus. Of course he, like many jazz greats played at the Jazz Cafe. See if you can find the track that Michael Jackson borrowed the riff from and then had to settle out of court. More about his life from the Guardian here.
Manu Dibango – the legendary Cameroonian saxophonist who's highly influential career spanned six decades – has passed away due to COVID-19.
You'll be dearly missed and we'll cherish the memories of you playing on our stage for years to come. RIP Pappy Groove. pic.twitter.com/fgefZK9LAO
