    Leon Russell, RIP

    Leon Russell, a legend of Oklahoma music, renowned as a pianist, singer, songwriter, session player, collaborator and solo album artist, whose work drew on and blended the many strands of American Roots and Popular music, passed away earlier this week.

    His obituary can be read here:
    Leon Russell dies at 74; hit songwriter, Wrecking Crew member, musical bridge builder - LA Times

    This video illustrates his talent at combining Bluegrass and Rock 'n' Roll, in a track from his 1981 Live Album, accompanied by New Grass Revival (with Sam Bush on mandolin)
