“My Dear friend Konrad Kliko Klinglefuss passed away yesterday”

Konrad Kliko Klinglefuss

The words of Big Bill Bissonnette upon learning of the death of one of Switzerland’s finest jazz musicians.

I too was stunned and saddened to learn this evening via Bill about the death off Konrad. I only recently read “KliKo’s” tribute to Sammy Rimington in Sammy’s Life in Pictures autobiography. Konrad was a member of and regular contributor to and supporter of my Facebook Jazzers Group and I wondered why he has recently been missing from the group. I will miss his contributions and repartee in the several email exchanges I had with him.

His passing is yet another great loss to the jazz world this year. I’m including Big Bill’s “Closer Walk with Thee” tribute to Konrad.
