Subject: Jazz Great Richie Cole Gone at 72

Written By: LyricBoy on 05/03/20 at 7:33 am

Legendary jazz alto saxophonist Richie Cole, also known as The Sax Machine, has passed away at the age of 72.  :\'(

Richie Cole was a prolific composer who jammed with jazz luminaries Eddie Jefferson, the Manhattan Transfer, Bobby Enriquez, Freddie Hubbard, Sonny Stitt, Art Pepper, Tom Waits, Boots Randolph, and Nancy Wilson. He performed at the historic Village Vanguard and Carnegie Hall. Cole even gave a command performance for Queen Elizabeth II.  8)

Born in Trenton NJ, he moved to Picksburgh a few years ago. An old high school buddy of mine regularly drummed with him at various local establishments.  8)

Richie had the goods. Amongst his many accomplishments he was once engaged to the lovely Brenda Vaccaro.  :-*
