Ed Shaughnessy: 1929-2013. In all probability, the percussion world will never see the likes of an Ed Shaughnessy again.  Shaughnessy, who died in May at the age of 84, was astonishing in his versatility, having played with everyone from Charlie Mingus and Count Basie to Ray Charles and Jimi Hendrix.  And he was comfortable with them all.
