The saxophonist is, however, an extraordinary technician and stylist, as he proves in this stunning set of duets with classically trained pianist Veryan Weston. There is rarely a dull moment, as Coxhill's pleasantly quirky sound snakes through 15 original pieces. At one moment intense, at the next deceptively slippery, the saxophonist's awesome command of his horn takes in the whole tradition of improvised music, curling and bending notes like putty.
Lol Coxhill is quite the case, eh wot? He can gibber on his soprano saxophone with the best of them (cf. the brief opener, "School Test"), but he can also play acidly lyrical lines (which may be why the second track is named "Slurry," which as far as I know is the gooey sweet stuff that ultimately hardens into jelly beans). Coxhill is an original who can play inside and out, as this collaboration with pianist Weston amply illustrates. Weston himself is a sensitive pianist, whose support of Coxhill's lines is telepathic.

The saxophonist Lol Coxhill, who has died aged 79, was one of the great characters of British music – generous, gifted and amiably eccentric. He had long been a stalwart of the European jazz and improvised music scene, but he reached all kinds through his collaborations with a wide range of music – Afro-Cuban, R&B, soul, progressive, punk, minimalist, electronic and beyond – while remaining recognisably himself. Coxhill acquired a valuable champion in the BBC DJ John Peel, who signed him to his short-lived independent label Dandelion. Ear of the Beholder (1971), the resulting double album, includes solo performances and collaborations with Bedford, Robert Wyatt, the Dutch pianist Jasper van't Hof and the guitarist Ed Speight.
