Alphonse Mouzon, a drummer on a number of fusion projects, has passed away at 68.
Wow, such an awesome drummer!
Fly on Alphonse.............................................................
Looks like I'll have to listen to Mind Transplant all day today. Just terrible news. RIP Alphonse
Bummer. He played on a crap-ton of seminal records that I loved in my formative years.
More sadness in a year filled with it. RIP Alphonse Mouzon.
He was supposed to play in Montreal this summer with his project but cancelled.
Wore the grooves out on this LP
Rest in peace, good sir...
NO!!! I am changing my icon. What a @#$#-ed year! And the year ain't over!
While I did not love his later "smooth jazz" directions, when I heard him with Larry C ( live or otherwise ) I really gained an appreciation for his talent. And that album, and the few before it with 11th House, were life-setting albums for me.
RIP A.M. - and have a good party up there!
Love his playing.
...check him out in the house band on That Thing You Do! (Jazz club scene).
Saw him at a little club in Tucson AZ in the mid 70's. Sat no more than 5 feet from him while he played percussions.
I had never heard of him before that but was assured I'd enjoy it. My girlfriend at the time was into that "Jazzy-progression" stuff so I tagged along. His playing was very impressive. I'd like to say I was totally enraptured with his performance, but being young at the time I was more interested in when it would end so I could get the girlfriend alone. Yes, I know youth is wasted on the young.
Thank you Alphonse for bringing joy to our ears and happiness to my long lost GF.
