Music: Cornell Dupree Jr., jazz and R&B guitarist, RIP

Cornell Dupree Jr., a guitarist who played with Aretha Franklin and Miles Davis, died this week at age 68.
Dupree also played on the Brook Benton song "Rainy Night in Georgia"--and he'd be a great if he'd never done anything else.  "Late at night when it's hard to rest, I hold your picture to my chest and I feel fine..."  If you've ever lost anyone, or felt the loneliness of the world, that song will move you (if you haven't heard it, listen to it here).  RIP.
