Terry Callier (1945 – 2012)

At the age of 67 Terry Callier, the great singer and songwriter from Chicago, passed away. His songs have been performed by many, but he was for sure underrated as a musician and performer. I met him around 1998 when he released Timepiece, one of his most successful recordings and later worked with him as Executive Producer on the Lookin’ Out album and Live in Berlin DVD. What a great, warm and humble human being. We met and talked a few times, I saw him perform in London often and he always captured me emotionally with his warm voice and deep lyrics. His last recording was Hidden Conversations (2009), a collaboration with Massive Attack and a superb album by any standard.

He will be surely missed. R.I.P
