Dave McMurdo

So sorry to hear of Dave's passing on Monday June 13th at the age of 67- it's a great loss to the jazz community of an incredible arranger, bandleader, educator and trombonist. The first time I met Dave at Jazz FM,  he couldn't resist the urge to flirt - Larry Green mentioned I was Colin's sister and Dave said - "you're much better looking than he is"...I last saw him at the tribute to Paul Read at  U of T.

One more for that big band in the sky.
