saw him a bunch back in the early/mid 90's (his quartet with tain watts was excellent live) and at a show in tacoma somebody yelled "dark star!" between songs. branford immediately played the melody a few times on soprano before jumping into one of his tunes.

not dead-related, but at that same show there was an r&b band rehearsing in a room somewhere near the concert hall and, during a really quiet part of one of branford's songs, their music was audible in the hall. the band all looked at each other and kind of laughed, then all started playing along with the r&b band's cover of "will it go round in circles" before returning to their own song. kind of a cool moment.
