Heard about his auto accident and departure on

THURSDAY December 5 -

 

From THE NEW YORK TIMES - Fri Dec 6

Bob Berg, the tenor saxophonist, was killed in a traffic accident yesterday in East Hampton, N.Y.,

where he lived. He was 51, and had played with Miles Davis, Horace Silver and Chick Corea, among others.

His solo albums included "Enter the Spirit" and "Back Roads," which was nominated for a Grammy Award

in 1993. The album was inspired by the East End, he said. Mr. Berg was born in New York and attended

the High School of the Performing Arts and Juilliard. His wife Arja, 52, was injured in the crash.

 

Just to give you an idea of what he accomplished since his birth in 1951, here is the
