Lol Coxhill on Emanem CDs


LOL COXHILL "Spectral Soprano" (1954-1999) EMANEM 4204 2-CD set

This retrospective double CD gives examples of Coxhill's early to recent work involving elements of improvisation including R & B, formally structured jazz, electronics, spontaneous music, an open rendition of an old play, and the odd bit of singing. An enormous variety of music ranging from straight-ahead jazz, to a concerto performance with the London Improvisers Orchestra, to an underwater slide saxophone solo recorded using a microphone in a condom. 135 minutes - all but one track previously unissued.

Price GBP 15.00



LOL COXHILL "Digswell Duets" (1978) EMANEM 4052

The 39 minute duet with SIMON EMMERSON is an early example of interactive saxophone and electronics, wherein Emmerson modifies Coxhill's sound, and Coxhill reacts accordingly, etc. The 34 minute duet with pianist VERYAN WESTON is an early example of their very compatible duo, which was still going strong until Coxhill´s death in 2012 brought the music to an end. Reissue of Random Radar RRR 005 with extra material from the same sessions. 73 minutes.

Special price GBP 7.00

4201 LONDON IMPROVISERS ORCHESTRA "Proceedings" (1999)


LOL COXHILL "More Together Than Alone" (2000-5) EMANEM 4136

Soprano saxophonist Lol Coxhill always sounds good regardless of what area he is playing in and who he is playing with. This collection just features his free improvising, but with a variety of partners. The late HUGH DAVIES was a master instrument inventor. Guitarist JOHN RUSSELL is one of the major stalwarts of the London improvising scene (like Coxhill). HENRY LOWTHER has been a much sought-after jazz trumpeter since the 1960s, but has always kept a toe in free waters. PAT THOMAS is a remarkable pianist as well as being a dab hand at getting the most out of electronics as can be heard here. There is also a substantial solo performance from one of the pioneers of unaccompanied saxophone improvisation - someone who remains one of the best practitioners of the art. 69 minutes.

Special price GBP 7.00
