Southern Jazz: There's No Place Like Home We paused as UN peacekeepers rolled onto the battleground that jazz critics and musicians inhabit these days. Our intafada against Kenny G, and the shelling by the Downtown artists halted as the Lincoln Center’s uptown brigade reloaded. The multinational squad was made up of Dr. Ted Borodofsky and his Southern Jazz band. Out of their unarmed transports came the music of Dixieland swing. His jazz, an authentic group swing, caused a cessation of all aggression. Yes, jazz was once a happy music and this collection of Paducah, Kentucky musicians was showing us the jazz version of the Jimmy Stewart film, It’s A Wonderful Life. Clarinetist Dr. Ted Borodofsky, a practicing Ophthalmologist, weaves sweet lines around the strong trumpet of Jerry Ford (the consultant, not the ex-president) while bass trombonist Ray Cissell supplies the heart and soul of the band. For the cynic, professional and amateur alike, there’s no argument that this music played with sincerity and love is the essence of jazz.
