In Memoriam: Saxophonist Mark Colby
The Downbeat Magazine commemorates the achievements and life of Mark Colby. "After dispensing much wisdom and detailed, practical advice, toward the end of the article, he wrote: 'Don’t get hung up on the equipment.' He added, 'Just play your heart out and let the music speak for itself.'" - Downbeat, 2020
