      Thanks Larry. Just saw the news on Gary Koh's page. Gone but never forgotten! And what a credit to the industry.

      It is with deep sorrow and heavy heart that I post the news that Mr Winston Ma passed away peacefully on 24th May 2016. I will always remember him for his passion for music, his determination for perfection, and most of all his joy of life and generosity of spirit.

      A funeral service will be held on Tuesday May 31st at 11:00 am.

        I think I will spool up my tape copy of Suite Espanola that Winston helped The Tape Project acquire and raise a glass to his memory!

          My publisher, David Robinson, was kind enough to share these two portraits he took of Winston a while back. Thanks David!

            Very sad news. Winston was always working on fine music and was a pleasure to know.
            He will be missed.

              To all:

              We said Goodbye to Winston today.

              It was a nice ceremony with family and friends.

              George Cardas and few others spoke recollecting their fond memories of time spent with Winston.

              We told Mariana, Winston's wife, about the threads here and elsewhere paying tribute to Winston.

              She appreciated all the sincere well wishes.

              Ki

                    Couple of other photos that I found on my hard drive of Winston that I wanted to share. (not sure if these came from David R. or not?). Here is Winston with Steve McCormack.
