John Tchicai (April 28, 1936 –October 8, 2012) was a Danish free jazz saxophonist and composer. After moving to New York City in 1963, Tchicai joined Archie Shepp (born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on May 24, 1937; he is 83 at this writing) and his New York Contemporary Five, as well as the New York Art Quartet.

He played on John Coltrane’s Ascension, and Albert Ayler’s New York Eye and Ear Control, both influential free jazz recordings. Rufus was Tchicai’s second album with Shepp. It was issued after their first collaborative LP, New York Contemporary Five (with Don Cherry added on trumpet), which was recorded during the same session.
