Gito Baloi

Seems like some times things can travel slowly across the planet, or otherwise I was just not paying attention. Only this morning I was browsing through the Mail and Guardian and came across this sad story. Apparently, Gito Baloi, celebrated jazz bassist and one-time member of the group Tananas, was shot and killed on the streets of Johannesburg in the early hours of April 4. I know his music well and saw him many times at the Bass Line Jazz Club that used to be up the road from my house in Johannesburg. How sad.
