Arni May

It is with sadness that I report the passing of Arni May. Arni was a fixture on the Vancouver musical scene for many years, most recently owning and operating 'Rossini's', a favourite jazz venue where many local musicians and singers cut their teeth. Arni had been ill for some time and I only learned of his passing when I returned from holiday last week. In many ways, it represents the end of an era for jazz in Vancouver. My condolences to his wife, Anne, and the family.
