Title: Hot Jazz
Post by: Slack on May 06, 2014, 10:50:09 AM
Interesting article in Vanity Fair about the NY music scene and a Jerron Paxton mention.

 Jerron ?Blind Boy? Paxton, 24, is African American, visually impaired, and an Orthodox Jew who won?t appear in public without a proper head covering. He sings and plays passionately (banjo, guitar, piano, and many other instruments), working with folk, blues, and country bands as well as jazz. They both know a million songs from the period, and their music is rife with soul and personality. They both possess what jazz players of all genres and generations strive for: a distinctive sound and approach to their instruments.
