Today brought news of at least the 100th jazz-related death from COVID-19 since the pandemic began.Singer and songwriter Tsepo Tshola died today (July 15) at a hospital in Teyateyaneng in his native Lesotho, a mountain kingdom that is surrounded by South Africa. He was 67. He performed for more than 40 years, primarily in Lesotho, South Africa and Europe.
I have a few more details in Chapter 4 of my COVID log.
Tshola's was the 100th such death that I have been able to document. I fear there may have been more, because not all obits or death notices list a cause.
