Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cecil Payne (December 14, 1922 - November 27, 2007) was a jazz baritone saxophonist born in Brooklyn, NY. Payne also played the alto saxophone and flute. He played with other jazz greats, in particular Dizzy Gillespie and Randy Weston, in addition to his solo work as bandleader. Payne received his first saxophone at age 13, asking his father for one after hearing Honeysuckle Rose by Count Basie, performed by Lester Young. Payne took lessons from a local alto sax player, Pete Brown. Payne began his professional recording career with J. J. Johnson on the Savoy label in 1946.show more
