This featured performance was unusual, but of a piece with Soupy’s musical taste. He appeared in a “Frankly Jazz” series episode featuring “The Martian Bossa Nova” by trumpeterÂ Shorty Rogers with Pete Jolly and Mel Lewis, among others; heÂ entertained at the 2002 Jazz Awards. His sons Hunt and Tony are musicians who have worked with David Bowie. Soupy will be missed but also remembered.
