His performing career was derailed because of severe hand problems. But later in life, he achieved some fame for his albums — and for the story of what he'd had to overcome to make it possible for him to record. Amadie died of lung cancer on Dec. 10. He was 76.<p>Amadie became an educator after he was forced to stop playing. He wrote two instructional textbooks: one on the harmonic foundation of jazz, another on jazz improvisation.
