With great sadness I have to tell you that my former husband, tenor saxophonist Bob Kindred, passed away on Monday.
 
“Like listening to the history of the tenor saxophone
 refracted through a human prism.” - Chuck Berg, Jazz Times

When I heard the news, there were two things from our early days together that I had to listen to:
  The beautiful Johnny Mercer/Barry Manalow tune “When October Goes” which I orchestrated for his first album and from “Bending Towards the Light . . . A Jazz Nativity,” our baby, that beautiful "Silent Night” starting the show in the darkness.

 “He can make the saxophone whisper and cry.” - Patriot News, Harrisburg, Pa.

 “He expresses a kind beauty and depth rarely heard . . . his tone is simply awesome.” - NY Daily News
 “He plays with dancing grace.” - John Wilson NY Times

 “Clearly an original . . . enormous tone and lightning speed which he uses judiciously. He goes deep into chords to find beautiful sequences of notes and he invests each one with passion." - Jazz Times

 “I wish I could play Mozart like Bob Kindred plays jazz”  Clarinetist  Richard Stoltzman  
 
        We will all miss his beauty.
