Gary Windo

Gary Windo

Gary Windo (November 7, 1941 in Brighton – July 25, 1992 in New York City) was a jazz tenor saxophonist.

He came from a musical family in England and by age six took up drums and accordion, then guitar at 12, and finally saxophone at 17. He lived in the United States in the 1960s, but returned to England in 1969. In the early 1970s his career grew as he founded his own group, the Gary Windo Quartet, and worked with Brotherhood of Breath, Centipede, Matching Mole, The Running Man, Carla Bley and Nick Mason.

He also did work outside with groups like Psychedelic Furs and Robert Wyatt. In addition to this he did incidental music for Saturday Night Live and also taught.

Although he was a blower, he suffered from asthma. He died in 1992 and since then compilation albums of his work continue to appear with a recent example being "Anglo-American."
