Thread Name: Obit: saxophone legend Lol Coxhill (1932-2012)
Subject: Obit: Lol Coxhill
Just heard that English saxophone legend has passed a couple of months short of his 80th birthday. A mainstay of the principle of humility in music, Lol was beloved of many & contributed to projects by musicians as diverse as Shirley Collins, The Damned, Kevin Ayers & a host of others as well as ploughing his unique furrow as a solo soprano improviser with a uniquely melodic touch, warmth & sense of humour.
