Anubis the Jackal

Death By Jazz

Recommended Posts

Guess this is the most appropriate thread for Claude Nobs. AKA "Funky Claude" as mentioned in Smoke on the Water.

 

Dead a few days now, link: http://en.wikipedia....iki/Claude_Nobs

 

Look 2 posts above yours.

 

Oops, I searched his name on here, came up wi nowt and posted without looking. Must've typed the name wrong.

 

You nob :lol:

The legendary jazz trumpeter Donald Byrd has died http://www.complex.c...onald-byrd-dies

 

This should be in the 'jazz' thread. There's a clue there!

I have to admit I thought he had died a few years ago.

Me too. There's a thread for that somewhere, isn't there?

Sad news. He had been performing up until very recently as one of the "3 Bs", the other being Acker Bilk and Chris Barber. They are now aged 84 and and 82 respectively.

Doing some research for my radio show this weekend I came across the fact that Ken Nordine (off-the-wall pioneer of word jazz) is still alive; b.1920 and has led a colourful enough life (including being voice coach for Linda Blair in The Exorcist) that he may well be obit-worthy. Found nowt on his current state of health, mind.

Marian McPartland OBE gone at 95.

 

http://www.npr.org/b...z-host-has-died

 

I spent about 20 minutes last week googling her to see if there was any health news from her, but she seemed to have dropped off the map when she finished her radio show. Surprised nobody ever picked her on the DDP.

And with her demise the survivor count from the photo A Great Day in Harlem goes down to three: Benny Golson, Sonny Rollins, and Horace Silver.

Wrong on that last count, actually. Three teams this year have her.

Bloody hell, why haven't we got an avant-prog/free improvisation/contemporary classical thread?! I blame the disappearance of Anubis, but surely Maryport could've started one instead?

 

Anyway, the world won't have to suffer anymore squawking/honking/droning from Henry Cow/Comus etc member and composer Lindsay Cooper, who's died of MS (so I guess she hadn't been skronking for a while).

 

Four-page spread in The Wire and a 2-hour tribute on Strange Fruit coming soon?
