Jam session at Henry Mancini's home, Fernando Gelbard (at left), Henry Mancini (holding his flute) and Hal Linden (holding his clarinet). The piano player (not seen here) was Mel Torme (actually, the top of his head is seen in the lower right portion of the photo!)

"Henry Mancini and I were good friends. I played with him a few times (he and I play flute) and we served on the board of the Foundation for New American Music for many years. His death was a great loss. He was a great, down to earth man."--Fernando Gelbard
