Tenor saxophonist from Cleveland; perhaps the father of all "soundual"
improvisors and noise-ists. Wrote themes straight out of old-timey Baptist
hymnals, played with the wide vibrato of a church saxophone; his solos were
the polar opposite: explorations of the sound-making possibilities of his
sax, abstract, intense - he and his groups (especially prior to the
late 60's) could sound like the critters on Noah's Ark at feeding time. His
corpse was found in the East River, 1970.
