Angel Rissoff passed away earlier this week. He was one of the greatest musicians I ever worked with. We became good friends over the past two years working on several projects together. He was blessed with talent and passion and I was blessed to get to know and work with him. He was a musician's musician and a gentleman - in a very cool way.
I took this picture just before Angel became ill. The smile on his face was genuine - not because I asked him to say cheese but because he was making music as I snapped the photo. He found joy in music and I found joy in his music and friendship. RIP, Angel.
