about

Regarded as one of the major figures of soprano sax improvising and experimentation
and well-known for his unorthodox recordings and concerts, Lol Coxhill possesses a
personal style unlike that of any of his contemporaries. Coxhill has always gravitated
toward the idea of musical freedom. Thus, while he aptly plays conventional bebop and
mastered his instrument using more conservative methods, Coxhill wanted to explore
the undiscovered possibilities of the saxophone. Consequently, in addition to inventing
new and personalized saxophone sounds, he turned to improvised music in the 1960s.
"I can get more involved in it as a listener than most other music," he told
Ben Watson of the Wire. "The very fact that it's open and you don't know what's coming
next, you can't decide beforehand what's coming." In his own improvisational approach,
Coxhill is best known for creating wrenching and twisting sounds during his winding
soprano and sopranino solos. He also uses minimal electronics and voice.
Between 1978 and 1981 he recorded and toured extensively with Andrea Centazzo in
duo and in combination with trombonist Giancarlo Schiaffini and trumpet player Franz
Koglmann, releasing 4 other ICTUS recordings: MOOT, SITUATIONS, DARKLY and
DARKLY AGAIN.
