I saw Hiseman and his wife Barbara Thompson playing together several times. He was one of the most accomplished musicians of his generation. RIP.

Only saw JH a few months back at the Robin2 with his new band JCM.
Brilliant performance and no indication that anything was amiss.
A great drummer...what a loss

You mean that double live set?

I never cared for it. Studio lps way better.


(And what an ugly cover! Only "Sabotage" beats it.)
