    Big Jay McNeely

    Rhythm and Blues hero, Big Jay McNeely, was famous for whipping audiences into a frenzy. Known as the King of the Honkin’ Sax, his guttural, brassy blasts coupled with an intense onstage presence blew down walls the world over. McNeely’s hits on wax were equally potent. 1949’s “The Deacon’s Hop” is a lasting R&B instrumental and 1959’s “There Is Something on Your Mind” can eternally be found in cars cruising low and slow.
