Can't really say it's a 'sad day', more like a life well lived and a lot of people would say dying before your 80's can be a blessing (I got into that discussion when Chick Corea died at the same age a few years back).

Stuff he wrote back in the early 80's is still fresh to my ears, in a similar way to Pat Metheny.
