Saxophonist/woodwind doubler Mike Migliore died this past week. He had colon cancer that had been in remission but ultimately returned and proved fatal. I would estimate his age as being in the mid-60s.
[Born 10/16/54, according to https://www.dignitymemorial.com/obituaries/montrose-ny/michael-migliore-8711597 -mf]
“Migs” was best known for his tenure as a featured jazz soloist with Maynard Ferguson’s band in the late 1970s. After he settled in NYC, he had a long and successful career as a woodwind player, often playing for Broadway shows.
