Lucille Rollins, who was married to tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins for 47 years and managed his business affairs, died on November 27, the Associated Press reports. She was 76.

Rollins became her husband's manger in 1971, and was credited by some with encouraging the intensely private musician to become more accessible. She also helped to produce and edit his later albums, and occasionally appeared as a percussionist.

She died at the couple's home in Germantown, New York.
