For anyone not familiar with Julian Priester, his album Keep Swingin' is a great intro.  He also recorded with Herbie Hancock with the group Mwandishi, as well as several albums with ECM Records.

His current situation is one that happens much too often in the US: person works their whole life and contributes to SSI/Medicare, and then gets sick.  The problem is their SS doesn't cover nearly enough and they basically go broke/bankrupt.  In most modern developed countries this situation isn't allowed to happen, because most reasonable countries feel this is unethical.  However, in the US, healthcare remains a privilege.
