    I got to see Dave at least three times in recent years around LA.  One of the coolest things was that he was a guy in in mid 80s, maybe even late 80s, who was just out there having fun, with no need to prove anything to anybody.  I saw him do "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" in his style and it was just incredible.  His version of "Over the Rainbow" is one of the prettiest things I ever heard.

    My dad got to see him in a little jazz club in LA back in the 50s.  That would have been something special.
