RIP Jon Christensen

The great Norwegian jazz drummer Jon Christensen has died today. I have dozens of albums that include his wonderful playing, as I’m sure many, many of you do too.

Thanks for the music Jon.


Great drummer. Love this clip of him playing with Sonny Rollins:

That is really too bad. I just realized that Jon Christensen is the drummer of my first ECM record I bought, Ralph Towner - Solstice in the mid 70s. So I can say, it was also him who brought me into this kind of jazz. Mea culpa that I didn’t pursue this career. The record is now on and will certainly be played a lot in the coming days in memory of Jon Christensen.
R.I.P. Jon
