Many people will attest to Jorge's contribution
to the world of improvised music and in particular his part in
developing the music in Portugal. They will, I hope, do justice to
his legacy both in musical performance and his critical acumen. For
my part, it is Jorge's friendship, generosity, intelligence and
humour that will remain uppermost in my memory. He was unfailingly
kind to my wife Jean and myself — always the good host — for which I
was (and remain) never able to repay him. We have all lost an
importance musical presence. I have lost a friend.
