Multiple Grammy winner Bob Belden dead at 58
Bob’s death in a Manhattan hospital was reported as a heat attack at the young age of 58.
In the Acknowledgments Section of my original Black Dahlia Avenger (Arcade 2003) publication I thanked Bob Belden for his beautiful Black Dahlia Suite composition as follows:
“My appreciation to jazz arranger/composer Bob Belden for his haunting and inspirational Black Dahlia suite. Belden’s musical epitaph to Elizabeth, with its high-and-low notes, transported me back to the blue shadow-world of the 1940s, and helped me feel myself into her life, as I searched for answers.”

Thank You Bob for your beautiful composition in tribute to Elizabeth Short. My condolences to all the Belden family and friends. Our loss is heaven’s gain.
May you REST IN PEACE.
