LOL COXHILL + PAT THOMAS "ONE NIGHT IN GLASGOW" (SCATTER, 1994)






A consummate musician with no stylistic boundaries. I've discovered him on the "Dunois Solos" which was also my first exposure to improvised solo musics.
He is in a line along soprano saxophone players as Sidney Bechet, Steve Lacy or Evan Parker.
Thank you Mr. Coxhill for your music and your impish humour.

An anecdote: "...used record dealer here told...that he met Lol on the
street one day when he was in the city for a jazz festival. Said hi and
invited him for a drink in a nearby cafe. Lol was happy to oblige and
sat for a chat. After a while, he took out his sax and a piece of paper.
He folded the paper in half, printed Lol Coxhill on it, put it on the
table in front of him. Then he played a tune. On finishing, he put his
sax and the piece of paper back in his case".
