Two more icons in the music world have passed away:

Jody Berry, a nightclub singer who headlined hot spots such as the Coconut Grove in Los Angeles and sang with jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald, died Tuesday. He was 68. Berry's new CD recording, "For Lovers Over Fifty and Under," is scheduled to be released soon, Olson said. Berry also created a men's clothing line, L'Uoma Elegante, and a line of upscale golf wear sold at boutiques in Los Angeles.

Dudley Hill, a bluegrass, rock and jazz guitarist who was one of the founders of the jazz-rock band Pearl Django, died Saturday. He was 56. Hill, who quit the band in March after battling colon cancer for about three years, died at his home, relatives and fellow musicians said.
