    Sadly, saxophonist Tony Coe passed away yesterday.

    a unique sax player, with a very individual approach and sound.

    possibly best know for playing the famous sax part in the theme to the Pink Panther films.(not all,but many of them)

    he also turned down an offer to join the Count Basie band !!!!!

    he had the most beautiful sound on tenor sax. Wonderful.
    But it was always his clarinet playing that knocked me out.

    very sad to hear this news.

    There can't be many people who have recorded with both Humphrey Lyttelton and Peter Brötzmann. RIP.

    Very sorry to hear this - will play Nutty at Willisau later this evening. I didn't realise he was also on Solid Air.
