SUMMER IS HERE!
Professor Louie & The Crowmatix are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of their friend master guitarist and jazzman Eddie Diehl.
He played guitar on the highest level since the late 1950s with some of the great jazz legends.
Eddie continued to perform throughout his life.
In the '80's, he moved to Poughkeepsie, NY and re-focused his talents also on luthery, something that he has a tremendous amount of notoriety for.
Eddie's solo CD Well Here It Is
with Hank Jones was released in 2006. Great musician and friend...He will be missed by many.
