Death of bassist Red Kelly: Thomas "Red" Kelly, a well-travelled jazz bassist who scored a direct hit on the funnybone of Washington state politics with a mock campaign for governor, is dead at 76. Kelly, who played with stars ranging from Frank Sinatra to Charlie "Yardbird" Parker and Billie Holiday and had stories about them all, died Wednesday, apparently of complications from cancer and other ailments.
