The multi-talented Bob Nave, who died Tuesday at home, is hard to describe in one sentence.

I first heard him playing jazz on old WNOP-AM (740), "Radio Free Newport," broadcast from floating oil drums on the Ohio River in the 1970s.

If you were into rock music in the 1960s, you heard him playing keyboard on "Green Tambourine" with The Lemon Pipers.
