Arthur Russell

Wikipedia - "Arthur Russell (born Charles Arthur Russell, Jr.; May 21, 1951 – April 4, 1992) was an American cellist, composer, singer and musician whose work spanned the genres of classical, disco, experimental, folk and rock. Notable artists who collaborated with Russell include Steve Reich, Allen Ginsberg, Philip Glass, Talking Heads, Jennifer Warnes, Bootsy Collins, and Nicky Siano. During his lifetime, Russell found the most commercial success in New York's underground dance and disco scene throughout the late 1970s and early 1980s. Although he recorded a considerable number of songs, the musician's near-chronic inability to finish projects resulted in an extremely limited amount of released output during his life. ..."
