‪#‎RIP‬ ‪#‎DennieVidal‬ Absolutely gutted to share the news about Jazz Jamaica‘s former sound engineer, #DennieVidal who passed away this morning after losing a battle with pancreatic cancer. Just cannot believe it. He was just 51 years old. Coming on top of the death of ‪#‎RicoRodriguez‬, this is truly depressing news for all of us in Jazz Jamaica.

Don’t have a photo of him at this time – will try to root one out – but those who worked with him will be deeply upset to hear about his passing. We’re awaiting news of the funeral arrangements.

Rest in deep musical peace, Brother Dennie. You will be greatly missed. Peace and love.
