Immediately following the news of Maynard's passing, there was an enormous outpouring of sentiments that came through the Trumpet Players' International Network (TPIN). All of them are reproduced below. There are posts from former band members and many great stories of discovery, love and appreciation of the "Boss."
The many experiences and sentiments expressed in this large body of words is powerful and proof of the impact Maynard had on the lives of trumpet players everywhere.
To the right is a list of links to some of the many other online resources dedicated to honoring Maynard. The videos are fantastic and some are quite rare. I hope everyone enjoys reading the posts and watching the videos as much as I did. Look for a substantial Maynard Tribute in the January ITG Journal.
