Yesterday we learned of the passing of the legendary recording engineer and studio owner who helped introduce and shape New Orleans' music, Cosimo Matassa. I posted a picture that I’ve had of him in front of his family’s French Quarter grocery store, that I’ve had for many years. I haven’t been able to remember where I obtained the picture. It’s at least 12 years old. It began to bug me, so I’ve been trying to track down the source.
I thought perhaps I might have obtained it from long time Zeller and one time “list-owner", Curtis Hewston. Because I’ve stayed in contact with him on Facebook, I knew he was currently hospitalized because of an unexpected bout with a perforated ulcer. So I decided to see how he was doing and maybe get some help tracking down the source of the photo. I was quite dismayed to learn that Curtis Hewston passed away from his illness on September 8th.
