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.
    
    Here are samples of his work with Ferguson:

    March 1978
    “Stella by Starlight”:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrhMT3nBz6w
    Summer 1978
    
    Migs and his pixieish sense of humor will be much missed.
