I saw him with Jack Dejohnette many years ago, in a group that included 
Lester Bowie on trumpet and John Abercrombie on guitar. Bowie and 
Dejohnette surprised everyone with a duet on those little end-blown 
Hohner keyboards (I called them keyharps). Not quite as weird as seeing 
Ed Blackwell play a saw solo with Mingus, but still pretty strange stuff.

Gomez, another titan. Man, he was so smooth.
