    Aw that sucks.

    He did extensive work with Prince for a LONG time, and his textures really sounded amazing, especially with a Prince backdrop. There's a song by Prince called "The Future" and everytime I hear the sting part on it, I get chills.

    RIP.

    rip clare.
    he was a masterful composer and arranger.
    i have a tape somewhere of demos for an album he was about to do.
    clare's nephew lives across the street from me.

    his other nephew was the drummer/founder of rufus.

    That's sad - I loved his writing and arranging.

    He was an inspiration to me.

    RIP Clare - you'll be missed.

    Thanks, Dana O.

    We shall never see the likes of Clare again. A man whose harmonic sensibility inspired Herbie Hancock...imagine that!

    A few more of his arrangements:

    clare also arranged the strings on "it never rains in california",by tonytonetoni..raphael saadiq's old group.

    clare made me turn the radio up whenever i heard his inimitable arrangements.

    Thanks, Neer! Digging the Hi-Los vid right now...

    Didn't know he was such an influence on Herbie, but he did write the Harmonic Exercises book, which seems little known outside the pro (gettin' paid) keyboardist community.
