RIP Laurie Frink

David Brownlow has reminded me that I've overlooked the passing of famed trumpet player and teacher Laurie Frink who left us on July 14 Highly rated by her contemporaries as both teacher and player Ms Frink played in the big bands of Benny Goodman, Thad Jones/Mel Lewis and many others including the award winning tribute to Gil Evans by Ryan Truesdale.
Laurie Frink was 61.
Rest In Peace.
