We were sad to hear that Bernie McGann passed away last night in hospital. Farewell to an original voice in Australian music.
In a review of McGann’s 2012 CD Wending, John Clare recently said:
One day Paul Grabowsky told me, ‘You know I’ve thought about this quite a bit and I’ve come to the conclusion that Bernie McGann is one of the great alto players of all time.’ It is what I think also.
Many would agree.
