Our Thoughts Go Out To Alphonse Mouzon's Family
May He Rest In Peace


Alphonse Mouzon
November 21st 1948 ~ December 26th 2016

American drum titan, Alphonse Mouzon, one of the world's greatest jazz-rock funk-fusion drummers
has sadly passed away at the age of 68. He died from neuroendocrine carcinoma, a rare form of cancer. It was only three months ago that Alphonse was informed of the actual severity of his illness, and he was hospitalized. Sadly he leaves behind his loving family including his two sons Alphonse Phillipe and Jean-Pierre, his daughter Emma Alexandra, his sisters Cherry and Elvina, and Granddaughters Andrea and Mikayla.
Alphonse Mouzon
Born on in Charleston, South Carolina, Alphonse attended Bonds-Wilson High School and took some drum lessons from Charles Garner before playing gigs with the Lonnie Hamilton Band. Following graduation from high school, he moved to New York to study music and drama at New York City College and medicine at Manhattan Medical School. While attending college, Alphonse played in the pit band of the Broadway show "Promises, Promises" as well as working as a medical technologist at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital after graduating from Manhattan Medical School.
By 1969 his reputation as a player had spread to such an extent that a medical career was no longer attractive and by the early seventies, he had embarked upon a musical journey that would take him to almost every corner of the world and would establish his reputation as one the most creative musician of the era. He first came to prominence as the drummer for Weather Report in 1971. He recorded several albums with McCoy Tyner and became a Blue Note artists, releasing his first solo record, The Essence of Mystery, in 1972. He recorded more than 25 solo albums during his career and so many more than that as a co-leader or sideman. His last solo album was 2011’s Angel Face. His musical associations read like a Who's Who of Modern Jazz and Pop Music. He was the rhythmic foundation for the far-reaching musical explorations of pianist McCoy Tyner. He was a charter member along with keyboardist Joe Zawinul and saxophonist Wayne Shorter, of the group Weather Report and along with guitarist Larry Coryell, he was co-founder of The Eleventh House, the seminal fusion band of the seventies. Over the course of his career he has also played and/or recorded with Gil Evans, Roy Ayers, George Benson, Herbie Hancock, Dizzy Gillespie, Stanley Clarke, Al DiMeola, Les McCann, Ronnie Laws, Klaus Doldinger's Passport, Jaco Pastorius, Ron Carter, Azar Lawrence, Joey DeFrancesco, Miles Smiles, Albert Mangelsdorff, Joachim Kuhn, Jasper van't Hof, Michel Legrand, Stanley Turrentine, Freddie Hubbard, Hubert Laws, Donald Bird, Chet Baker, Randy Brecker, Michael Brecker, Ernie Watts, Sonny Rollins, Wallace Roney, Arturo Sandoval, Christian McBride, Kenny Barron, Cedar Walton, George Coleman, John Klemmer, Billy Harper, Dave Grusin, Russ Freeman, George Howard, Kirk Whalum, Jeff Lorber, Kenny G., Joanne Brackeen, Horace Parlan, Robin Kenyatta, Kevin Toney, Sunnie Paxson, Ross Carnegie Orchestra, ex-girlfriend Roberta Flack, Sheila E., Celia Cruz, Gloria Lynn, Gloria Coleman, Denise Williams, Freda Payne, Shirley Scott, Anita O'Day, Betty Davis, and in 1991, he performed with Miles Davis on the movie soundtrack album entitled "Dingo". Alphonse also played and/or recorded with and helped the early careers of Tommy Bolin, Lee Ritenour, David Beniot, Gerald Albright, Sam Riney, Brandon Fields, Greg Karukas, Dave Koz, and Richard Elliot. His rock/pop credentials include gigs with Stevie Wonder, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Carlos Santana, Patrick Moraz, Tommy Bolin, Chubby Checker and he appears on Deep Purple's Family Album along with guitarist Tommy Bolin who replaced guitarist Richie Blackmore in the band. Led Zeppelin's lead singer, Robert Plant, named Alphones during his acceptance speech for induction into the 1995 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, as one of the band's major influences. Also in 1992, he founded Tenacious Records, which produced many of his albums. He appeared in four movies, including "That Thing You Do" as the nightclub bandleader. In 2010, Alphonse and his children released the jazz-funk / hip-hop CD call entitled “The Main Attraction"by his oldest son/Rapper Mouson aka Alphonse Philippe Mouzon featuring Alphonse on drums, trumpet, keyboards, bass, guitars along with his daughter pop singer Emma Alexandra Mouzon and Filipino pop singer Sharon T.

Our Thoughts Go Out To Rick Parfitt's Family
May He Rest In Peace


Rick Parfitt
October 12th 1948 ~ December 24th 2016
Hard-rocking guitarist and songwriter who had multiple hits over 5 decades with the legenary UK rock band Status Quo has died in a hospital in Marbella, Spain, from a severe infection. He had been hospitalized since Thursday due to complications from an earlier shoulder injury stemming from a fall. Married three times Rick sadly leaves behind his wife Lyndsay his 4 children: Tommy, Lily, Rick Jr. and Harry.

English singer, songwriter and rhythm guitarist Richard John Parfitt was born in Woking, Surrey and first started to learn to play the guitar at the age of 11. In 1963 while performing in The Feathers, Goodge Street, Camden, an agent from Sunshine Holiday Camp on Hayling Island, who gave him a performing job at the camp. Rick joined Jean and Gloria Harrison, aka The Harrison Twins, to form a trio called The Highlights. It was at Butlins where he met future Status Quo partner Francis Rossi, who was playing with Alan Lancaster and John Coghlan in a band called The Spectres, soon to be renamed Traffic Jam. After Rick became friends with the band, their manager Pat Barlow invited him to join the group and in 1967, Traffic Jam changed their name to The Status Quo but soon dropped the definite article. In 50 years, they have had over 60 chart hits in the UK, more than any other rock band, 22 of these reached the Top 10 in the UK Singles Chart, including "Pictures of Matchstick Men" in 1968 (the group's only Top 40 hit in the United States, peaking at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100), soon followed by "Ice in the Sun" the same year, "Down Down, " in 1974, "Whatever You Want" in 1979 and "In the Army Now" in 1986. In July 1985 the band opened Live Aid at Wembley Stadium with "Rockin' All Over the World". In 1991, Status Quo received a Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music. Status Quo starred in their first feature film, Bula Quo!, which was released to cinemas in July 2013. The film coincided with the release of the soundtrack album Bula Quo!, which peaked at number 10 in the UK Albums Chart. The first single from the album, "Bula Bula Quo" was released in June 2013, and was Quo's one hundredth single release. In 1984, the year before Quo would open Live Aid, Rick and Francis Rossi appeared on the Band Aid charity single, "Do They Know It's Christmas?" and were appointed Officers of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the New Year Honours 2010. In April 2015, along with his wife Lyndsay and Julian Hall, Rick set up "Status Homes", a real estate company based in Marbella, Spain. He had heart attacks in 2011 and 2013 and been unwell for much of the last year, had technically ‘died’ after suffering a cardiac arrest during a Turkey gig in June before being revived.
