David's fearless disdain of the physical distance between himself and his many, many subjects -- Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Mississippi John Hurt, the New Lost City Ramblers, Bruce Springsteen, Roscoe Halcomb, Miles Davis, John Lennon, Eck Robertson, Pete Seeger, Bill Monroe, oh, yes: and me, too just to name a very few -- coupled with his brilliant use of natural light produced pictures of powerful nuance and intimacy whether posed or candid. It is impossible to think about America's popular and folk music of the last half century without having a Dave Gahr picture in your mind.

Jack would usually play the same character, sometimes the bewildered victim, sometimes a slightly drunk or drugged hipster witness.

Billy Crystal calls Jack Sheldon "the last cat standing," a man who survived drugs and a tough personal life and kept on going, still playing his music every day. Closing out our show tonight is Jack Sheldon performing the theme from The Sandpiper , a very bad movie starring, as one critic put it, "Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, and a bird.
