One of Canada's greatest musicians died suddenly of a massive heart attack on Monday. Doug Riley, known as Dr. Music, was a superb jazz artist, gifted composer, and musical director of the Famous People Players. There is a tremendous void in Canada's musical landscape today.
Here's a video from the 2006 Canada's Walk of Fame show, featuring Dr. Music, together with Paul Shaffer, Joey DeFrancesco, and Lonnie Smith on Hammond B3s.
