AFRO-AMERICAN MUSIC INSTITUTE CELEBRATES 36 YEARS
Pain Relief Beyond Belief
Today I got this email from Ken and Felicia. Very sad news.
My friend, mentor and fellow board member, saxophonist Frank McGowan has passed. Mr. Frank was very suportive in my efforts to have music in the communities and came to every Jazz Fan Appreciation event he could make it too. My last time seeing him play was at this year's Kenny Fisher Memorial Jam Session. And what a smokin' session that was! You had to be there.
He was also very commited to the music as most of you well know and I served with him on the board of directors for the African American Jazz Preservation Society of Pittsburgh. He was our recording secretary. I will miss my good friend.
Final arrangements for our musical colleague and dear friend Frank McGowan will take place at House of Law, Inc. in Penn Hills.
