RIP Big Jay McNeely

The LA Weekly has announced the death of Big Jay McNeely. The 'King of the Honkers' passed away yesterday (Sept. 16). He was 91.
The saxophonist set the pattern for R'n'B and later R'n'R tenor playing although beneath it all he was still a good jazzman - you just had to strip away the veneer.
A legend!
Obituary.
Lance.
