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.
