Last chorus.

Posted on

According to Wiki, Denmark-born free-jazz saxophonist John Tchicai has died.

I wrote a post in late May about an unusual distinction of his: Tchicai was the only musician to appear on record with both John Coltrane and John Lennon. (The details are in the link.)

The Coltrane and Lennon collaborations represented only two days of Tchicai’s life, of course. The rest of it he spent in less exalted (and even less remunerative) settings, writing and playing jazz on its outer fringes.

Tchicai was 76.
