RIP Lol Coxhill

Sad to learn of the death of saxophonist Lol Coxhill, one of the UK's first genuine free improvisers. In truth his music didn't always quite got through to me but I appreciated his earlier blues based work, his dedication to his beliefs and the high regard he was held in by his followers. 
Lol Coxhill died earlier today. He was 79.
