The great, Chicago-based but internationally known saxophonist Mark colby has passed away. He was loved by all who knew him or heard him for his exceptional talent, engaging personality and no-holds-barred sense of humor! We were fortunate to have had him play with us a couple of times–always special when he could join us! R.I.P. Mark, we’re all better players and people for having known you. (Photo: Doug Fulford)
