Lol Coxhill R.I.P.

Today we got the sad news that Lol Coxhill died, after some time of serious illness.

In this blog we want to salute Coxhill both for his work as a free improvising musician (see Helen Petts´ video from 2009), and for his work with Kevin Ayers (see the "May I" video from 1972) and Robert Wyatt.

Let´s cite Jazzwise, writing that Lol Coxhill probably was "..the only saxophonist who could claim to have played with Anthony Braxton, Tommy Cooper and punk rockers The Damned. He will be greatly missed".

And please read David Toop: "end of play, for Lol Coxhill".
