Every Now and Den
Donald Maggin's memorial service was held September 14 at St. John's Cathedral. There was music by trumpeter Jimmy Owens, who also Spoke; pianist Mike Longo; pianist Paul West; Ray Mosca, and singer Carla Cook, with a postlude by pianist Jill McManus. I had the honor of being one of the remembrance speakers. Afterwards, a reception was held at the Columbia University Faculty House, where I discovered yet another musician friend of Maggin's, pianist Connie Crothers.
