Dexter Payne

Born:

Clarinetist Dexter Payne's release, "Prá Você" (Dexofon Records) is still getting great airplay and good reviews: Huff Post, Downbeat Magazine, Offbeat Magazine, AllAboutJazz.com, and more! Payne choses the scenic route through the world of music. The scenic route always takes longer, destination-wise. Worthwhile?

He based there with his wife, the late Judy Roderick, and toured from coast to coast with her and with swing band, Big Sky Mudflaps, including repeat performances on NBC Today Show and Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion
