Maynard Ferguson RIP

Just got this e-mail in the in-box :

 

"I have the deep regret of letting all of you know that last night at 8PM,
one of the greatest jazz legends passed away from liver and kidney failure.
This legend happened to be my beloved father in law: Maynard Ferguson

He passed very quickly and with minimum pain. He will be sorely missed, by
his 4 daughters his 2 son in laws, his 2 grandchildren, and of course all
the friends and fans who have loved him throughout the years.

Christian Jacob"

More to come on Mr. Ferguson.

The Note

Yesterday coming home from work, i found in the mailbox the summer issue of "The Note", official newsletter of the the Al Cohn Memorial Jazz Collection.
It contains ao. a long text from a ESU Jazz Seminar with Kim Parker, the first of a two part interview with Mel Lewis from 1989, and a beautifull foto taken by Bill Crow at the 1958 Newport Festival of Miles Davis talking with some (female) fans... Really worth reading!!
