Saxophonist and vocalist – John Tchicai visited Israel last week for the White Nights Festival of Alternative Contemporary music. After he expressed the desire to work with piano and drums the organizers hastily contacted me.
We put together an hour of material (mostly freely improvised) around John’s tunes and the Monk standard Pannonica. The full audience responded ecstatically to John’s playing and singing. It was indeed a privilege to work with such an outstanding and mature musicican. I learnt much from his confidence, demeanour and modesty. He is a real gentleman.
