Ray Smith of Ray’s Jazz Record Shop – not to be confused with Ray Smith the jazz radio producer at WGBH – died on Sunday at the age of 76. His name lives on (above).
Jack Massarik’s Obituary of Ray Smith is at Jazzwise Magazine.
UPDATE: Richard Williams’ obituary of Ray Smith is in the Guardian.
Shame, let's hope that those currently running the establisment have the same passion as Ray and continues to keep the place running.
