Tim Price Bloggin' ForD'Addario Woodwinds- Pierre Dewey LaFontaine, Jr., aka- Pete Fountain ; Thank you sir.

Pierre Dewey LaFontaine, Jr., better known as Pete Fountain, was a legendary New Orleans jazz performer. He brought the traditional jazz of his native city to a national audience through frequent appearances on television. He performed for presidents and a pope, making him an international ambassador for jazz and culture. He died August 6 at the age of 86.

In the grand scheme of things....Pete was a giant. The music spoke louder than anything anyone could say- and that's the way it should be! His sound, ideas, respect for the music and his vibe touched all kinds of people all over this planet.
