RIP Malachi Favors

Malachi Favors, the bassist of the Art Ensemble of Chicago, died of cancer Jan. 30. I only just learned this. Sad.

I wonder what they played at the funeral.

In "The Second Cuckoo", I read of an organist who was asked to play "Sheep May Safely Graze" at a funeral mass. He later learned that the deceased had been an importer of New Zealand lamb.
