JON HISEMAN DIES AGED 73
It is with great regret that we must inform you that Jon Hiseman lost his brief battle with cancer and sadly passed away on Tuesday, 12th June 2018
Jon Hiseman was taken ill during the course of the recent JCM tour which was cancelled when he was discovered to have a cancerous brain tumour. The cause of death was complications of surgery that he underwent in May 2018 to remove the tumour.
JCM's album, “Heroes,” contains music written by former collaborators Jon Hiseman had outlived, among them Jack Bruce, Allan Holdsworth, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Graham Bond and Ollie Halsall. The band intends to resume touring as a tribute to Jon Hiseman and his astonishing musical legacy.
Memorial donations should be made to National Youth Jazz Orchestra via a Just Giving page set up in Jon’s memory, who was always a great champion of new talent.
