Rich Olsen, Virtuoso Arranger
By Matthew Caulfield

Oh, how I miss Rich Olsen, my favorite arranger.  I am helping Jack
Breen identify his style 150 roll fragments, and in the process had
occasion to dig out the attached arrangement of "Clarinet Polka" that
Rich did for me for use on his first 165 band organ roll that I had
Play-Rite produce.

What a talent the band organ world lost when Rich died suddenly in
October of 2013 at the age of 60 or 61 years.
