Jerry Wexler,the former Billboard magazine reporter and famous record producer died today in Sarasota,FL at the age of 91.He was often credited as the person who coined the term "rhythm and blues".He was responsible for bringing Dusty Springfield to Memphis and her successful recording session that turned out "Son of a Preacher".He and those of his caliber are certainly in short supply today.Rest in peace.
