SEATTLE — Northwest jazz lost an exceptionally talented and eccentric figure last week when bassist/pianist Jerome “Jerry” Heldman died of pneumonia.

Heldman was the proprietor and also a performer at the Llahngaelhyn, a legendary coffee house located in the fairy-castlelike building just south of the University Bridge that hosted jazz from 1965 to 1968.
