[Facts] Pronunciation of Tone Kwas
Hi --I've been searching diligently for the pronunciation of Big Band trumpeter, orchestra leader, composer, and educator Tone Kwas -- but with little success. Wiktionary suggests that, generally, "Tone" should be pronounced as is the common noun "tone." Namespedia.com, not altogether helpfully gives a list of rhyming words for "Kwas": Iowas Ojibwas Ottawas schwas was twas does buzz schemas crush.Any jazz aficionado out there who happens to know how musician Tone Kwas name is pronounced?Thanks in advance!

Is it possible that Tone is a variant spelling of Tony, pronounced the same but spelled differently? I couldn't find anything for the pronunciation of the name either but that's my guess.
