Dave McMurdo passes away.

I just got the sad news that Vancouver born trombonist/composer/bandleader Dave McMurdo has passed away. Big Dave left Vancouver in 1969 for Toronto and became one of the movers and shakers of the Toronto and International Jazz scene. His teaching, playing, writing and bandleading skills will be missed as well as his gruff demeanor which only hid a compassionate, kindly and very humerous man who contributed much to our beloved music.
Gavin Walker's The Jazz Show is heard Mondays 9PM to midnight on CITR 101.9 FM and online.
