Paul Gonsalves

Paul Gonsalves

Profile:
American jazz saxophone player.

Born: 12 July 1920 in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
Died: 14 May 1974 in London, England, UK (aged 53).

Regarded by some as recording one of the great British jazz albums of the 1960's, "Boom-Jackie-Boom-Chick" (1964), where his talented saxophone performance is highly apparent.
Though he also recorded, or featured on many other great releases (including many of friend and colleague Duke Ellington who's band career he helped revive around 1957) from the early 1950's until his death in 1974 (just nine days before Ellington himself died; who was never told of Gonsalves death).

Father of Brainstorm band member Renell Gonsalves.
