The most superb rendition of "Ol Man River", you will ever, ever hear.

Also, Gil Price died in Vienna January 2, 1991. His propane heater malfunctioned during the night and he suffocated. What a loss.

He apparently asphyxiated from the fumes of a faulty space heater.

He was romantically linked to the poet Langston Hughes
