Saxophonist Richie Cole died on May 2, 2020. He lived a jazz life all the way. His playing, his demeanor and his philosophy were all contained in his catchphrase / modus operandi: Alto Madness. This episode revisits conversations with him over the years, as well as recent chats with Janis Siegel and Ben Sidran about their friendships with him, and some newly unearthed live performance recordings of Richie with singer Eddie Jefferson, captured just days before Jefferson was killed.
