Tampa Bay’s favorite saxophone player returns

Day 2 of Clearwater Jazz Holiday featured Mindi Abair, my favorite contemporary saxophone player, and blues legend, Buddy Guy.

For Tampa Bay locals, Mindi Abair is a household name.  Born in St. Petersburg, FL, she is practically a permanent fixture of Clearwater Jazz Holiday, returning year after year to play her unique blend of jazz, blues, and rock.  This year she hit the stage with The Boneshakers and Sweet Pea Atkinson, returning afterwards to do a song with Buddy Guy.  The saxophone and the guitars did a lot of the singing that night, which was a good thing.  Hats off to Mindi Abair, Randy Jacobs (of The Boneshakers), and Buddy Guy.






P.S. Mindi Abair and The Boneshakers Live in Seattle album was just released last month and is now for sale on iTunes and Amazon.
