Our friend and colleague, Grammy-winning jazz flutist and New Age music pioneer Paul Horn has died. He was 84. 

Horn’s son, Marlen, says his father died Sunday in Vancouver, British Columbia, after a brief illness. Horn is survived by his wife Ann Mortifee, his sons Robin and Marlen, stepson Devon, 4 grandchildren – Brittany, Tyler, Jonah, Ana – and daughters in law Robin, Alison and Beth.

Horn’s career spanned five decades, 50 albums and five Grammy nominations. He performed in concert tours and recording sessions with such artists as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Miles Davis and Duke Ellington.

A private memorial-celebration of life is being planned.
