The Musicians’ Voice

Volume CI, No. 12December, 2001


To the editor,

I am currently writing a memoir and I would appreciate the help of anyone who knew Nat Pavone (trumpet), Raymond Maldonado (trumpet), Mike Lawrence (trumpet), Michael Rod (woodwinds) and Harry Shields (trombone). I need to know the dates and the causes of their deaths, as well as any anecdotes that might be of interest to others. I can be reached at (212) 246-4935 or

Thank you in advance!
