Doug Lunn: Remembrance from Kyoto, Japan.


I have very fond memories of Doug Lunn because we went to high school together. This was the late 60s and we, like everyone else, were caught up in that unique zeitgeist.

But Doug’s life was all about music. I remember visiting Doug at his house where he introduced me to all those early ECM records, such as Facing You, Crystal Silence, and Red Lanta. It was through Doug that I first heard Weather Report and the Mahavishnu Orchestra. Doug was a huge Frank Zappa fan and I remember first listening to Fillmore East—June 1971 in Doug’s room.

Even way back then all who knew Doug knew that he was going to succeed as a musician. With some people you can just tell: they simply radiate unstoppable artistry, grace, and determination. I am not exaggerating when I say that Doug was an early and powerful source of inspiration. I’m sure many others can gladly say the same. Gassho to Vida and Dani. Rest in peace my friend.
