    His award should have been presented during Primetime for the whole world to see. He is a legend and icon in the world of music and he deserves better...much better.

    Wow I didn't know his condition had deteriorated this much. Hope I get to see him perform live at least once before he's gone.

    Can't help but feel sad to see him in this condition. . . one of the few surviving Jazz titans. When I became curious about Jazz back in the late 70's, his recording JuJu was one of my first purchases. I bought it because I liked the cover art and when I heard the music, I couldn't wait to hear more ! All these decades later, His Blue Note recordings and the second Miles Davis quintet remain some of my very favorite music.

    All his Blue Note recordings are masterpieces to me.

    85 years old ! He has done so much amazing work over the years in jazz not to mention his work with Stealy Dan.

    My god this man deserves this award. For the last 60 years he has been letting out some of the most amazing music this world has ever seen, and his genius has never even gotten close to escaping his work. He is now 85 and his quartet is one of the most phenomenal bands I have ever seen play in my life. I dream of the day that the people of this world will begin to cherish this kind of music rather than the so-called “music” some of them listen to today. God bless this man, and his everlasting genius.

    i had no idea Wayne has had some health challenges. Is there anyone out there that knows exactly what he is going through? I don't think its a stroke, just wondering. Holding him high in the consciousness of light and love.
