RIP Al Porcino - the Brass Sections Will be Muted Tonight

Another all-time great has left us. Al Porcino, famed lead trumpet man with bands such as Woody Herman, Buddy Rich, Stan Kenton and many other name bands, died on January 2 (some reports say NYE) aged 88.
As well as the above illustrious names Porcino also led his own big band before moving to Germany in the 1970's where he continued to lead big bands.
He died in Munich.
