Well-known jazz expert Herb Wong died at home early Sunday morning, leaving behind a legacy filled with writings and interviews covering the world of jazz over much of the 20th century. He was 88.

"He had so many roles in the community," said Paul Fingerote, a friend and colleague for 35 years who was working on a book with the Bay Area jazz legend. "He was a true Renaissance man, plus he was a unique guy."
