RIP: Lol Coxhill, free-improv saxophonist

From Jazzwise:

Thoughts go out to the friends and family of veteran British free-improvising saxophonist Lol Coxhill who has died in hospital aged 79, after several weeks of serious illness. Coxhill was reportedly first brought to prominence after being spotted busking by DJ John Peel outside the Royal Festival Hall on London’s South Bank in 1968. During the late 1960s and early 70s, he forged strong links with the Canterbury scene, playing in jazz-rock groups such as Kevin Ayers & The Whole World and Delivery.
