I don't think Steve was an SOTW member but I'd like to inform you all of his sudden passing. Only 50 yrs.old and a Kamloops BC native, originally from Ontario, Steve studied at Humber College. Served with Canadian Forces School of Music, Camp Borden, Ont., Naden Band, CFB Esquimalt. A great player and teacher, flute, sax and theory. Radio host of his own Jazz Show. Steve established and designed the internationally renowned School District 73 "District Jazz" initiative, which brings advanced jazz Improvisational Studies to high school students. This unique program continues to inspire young musicians in the BC Interior. Condolences to Syd and Family.
