Alphonse Mouzon (November 21, 1948 – December 25, 2016)

Legendary Fusion drummer, Alphonse Mouzon passed away on December 25 aged 68. Although, perhaps, best known for his work with Weather Report, Mouzon performed and recorded with most contemporary names including Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner, Donald Byrd, Gil Evans, the list is probably endless - until now that is. In a year that has seen many household names depart, Mouzon was certainly one of the ones most mourned by the jazz community. I never saw him live although I came close at the North Sea Jazz Festival in 1984. Unfortunately, his concert clashed with a one by Dizzy Gillespie and James Moody so choices had to be made...
RIP.
Lance.
