SAXOBIT: Cornelius Bumpus, the Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan saxophonist has died. The 58 year old suffered a fatal heart attack on a flight from New York.

In 1977 Bumpus joined Moby Grape before moving on to the Doobie Brothers, a relationship which ended in acrimony when he lost a court battle allowing him to work under the name. Bumpus joined Steely Dan in 1993, playing on the Grammy award winning Two Against Nature. Amongst other artists, Bumpus worked with Etta James, Boz Skaggs and Hugh Masekela.
