One of the most distinctive voices in jazz, Art's cool almost elegant playing contrasted dramatically with his controversial life - it was anything but a "Straight Life" - yet how fortunate we have been to have had him with us.
Love his album "Straight Life" - particularly the tracks "Surf Ride", "Nature Boy" and "September Song". (His autobiography "Straight Life" is worth reading as it provides some chilling insights into his frequently grim life.)
