Maynard Ferguson, 1928-2006

Just received word that Maynard Ferguson, the jazz trumpeter nominated for a Grammy for his recording of "Gonna Fly Now," has passed away.

(Listen to the NPR tribute or read about him on the Maynard Ferguson website for more info on his life and career.)

Rest in peace, Mr. Ferguson. Now you can really fly.
