Donald Byrd (1932 - 2013) -- Fancy Free, recorded June 1969

For the second week in a row, there were no military casualties recorded in Afghanistan. The total number of allied service members killed in Afghanistan remains 3,257.

While we may be thankful for the lull in casualties in the Middle East, we must also say good-bye to the following notable names:
Schoolteacher (and illegitimate daughter of Strom Thurmond) Essie Mae Washington-Williams, singer/songwriter Reg Presley, jazz musician Donald Byrd (video above), Alabama school bus driver murderer and child abductor Jimmy Lee Dykes, movie make up artist Stuart Freeborn, jazz musician Paul Tanner, film producer Chris Brinker, artist Richard Artschwager, and professional table tennis player Zhuang Zedong.
