Randy Weston, a pianist and composer who devoted more than half a century to the exploration of jazz’s deep connection with Africa, died on Saturday at his home in Brooklyn. He was 92. His death was announced by his wife and business partner, Fatoumata Weston. When you go to Africa, you become very humble, Weston told Sheila Anderson last year, in a Salon Session interview at WBGO. You realize that you are from thousands and thousands of years of civilization, and how much we have to learn from these people. WBGO's Sheila Anderson with pianist Randy Weston, April 2017.
