I got an email today from Vintage Guitar Magazine on behalf of Kenny's wife Katherine.

At 85 Kenny Burrell is no longer able to play, and they were the victim of identity fraud which has put them in serious financial difficulty. A GoFundMe page has been set up and is doing well so far, but I'm sure they need all the help they can get.

I saw Kenny live may eons ago when I was barely in my 20's and I still relish the memory. He's always been one of the classiest and tasteful jazz players on the planet and I wish I had had the financial means to help his family out.

If you know his work and can get involved please do so. Such a talent does not deserve to flame out like this.
