I know I'm a little late on this one but Lars Hollmer's death did hit
me hard. I hadn't known that he was ill. He was easily in the top 10
of my favorite musicians and he was still cranking out fantastic music
until very recently. You don't have to go back to the 70s to find a
great Lars Hollmer record. I was first turned on to Lars with the
Zamlaranamma album back in the early 80s. I had the great pleasure to
see him in both Victoriaville (92) and Ann Arbor(06). Ann Arbor was
amazing with a large ensemble and was one of the best concerts I've
seen or will ever see. We were definitely robbed of a phenomenal
talent that still had so much to give. I'll miss him greatly.
