About Thomas Chapin:
The death of Thomas Chapin from leukemia at age 40 was one of those cruel twists of fate that periodically mark the history of jazz. Fortunately, Chapin left behind an artistically significant and reasonably large body of work. Alto sax and flute were Chapin's principal instruments. He played alto with a huge, golden sound. On flute, he got an edgy, near-classical sound that cut through his energetic rhythm sections. Chapin's style was utterly personal. Although he drew from influences like Rahsaan Roland Kirk and Jackie McLean, Chapin's voice was his own.
