The American jazz and blues musician Bob Lenox has died in his adopted home of France at the age of 65, his producer said on Tuesday.

As a pianist, singer and composer combining jazz, blues, folk and rock, Lenox worked with big names such as Jimi Hendrix, Tina Turner and Joe Cocker as well as in his own bands, and also composed music for films.

He was born in Brooklyn, New York, but had lived for some years in France where he died after a long illness, Phyllis Glaeser, who produced Lenox's last album "Romance" in 2009, told AFP.
