    Rob McConnell died in a Toronto hospital this afternoon from liver cancer. His health had been declining for the last couple of months. The valve trombonist, composer, arranger, teacher and leader was best known as the leader of The Boss Brass, a 22-piece jazz orchestra, and the Rob McConnell Tentet. He was 75 years old.

    This is the first I have heard about Rob McConnell. Thanks for the post, and thanks, Rob, for the music.
