Manny, I am posting this here out of respect to you and Mr. Ferguson as professionals and the whole Monette connection. I realise there are other threads on this very sad news but wanted to post on your forum...I hope that you are ok with this.

Well, if I could play like Wynton (Marsalis), I wouldn't play like Wynton.

I always loved his playing. I wish I could have seen him in person more.

I wonder if he had the chance to play on the Flumpet Dave was building for him?

RIP, Mr. Ferguson. May his music live on throughout generations to come!

Gabriel, move down a chair.
The Boss has come home.
This is truly sad news. I just saw him in concert this past spring and he still brought the goods.

Maynard went without having been hooked up to maschines to artificially prolong his life. He played right up until the end. What a trumpet player!
This way we will remember him as the vibrant energetic person that he was.
I am sure Gabriel will have a great time..........
Check the pics on the Monette web site.
