#Sax Party: Homage to Big Jay McNeely

Big Jay McNeely, considered by many as the “king of the honkers”, died in Los Angeles September 16th. He was perhaps the saxophonist who best exemplified the creation of a sax language for rhythm & blues. To pay tribute to him, Dani Nel·lo, Dani Pérez and Pere Miró – undoubtedly three of the best saxophonists on the jazz, blues and r ‘n’ b scene in this country – will come together on the Jamboree stage and blow their horns in his honor. They will be accompanied in playing his repertoire by one of the most solid r ‘n’ b and rock ‘n’ roll rhythm sections anywhere in Spain. Energy and wild sax playing are guaranteed.

Where:  Jamboree Jazz Club Plaça Reial 17, 08002 Barcelona
When: November 25th
