I met Marty at a Costco in Westlake Village CA a few years ago while we were both killing time and looking at the Yamaha piano display...he sat down and started playing a few notes....I was very impressed and we struck up a short conversation where he introduced himself, and had a great talk. I didn't know "who" he was at the time, but knew that he was incredibly talented. I would always look for Marty when I went back to Costco, thinking that he must live locally. I never had the chance to reconnect with him,...but I always thought about him, his music talent, and our short friendship. My sincere condolences to Marty's family and friends on his passing. Rest in peace Marty! You may be gone, but you are not forgotten.
