Big Jay McNeely • Blues & Rhythm Series Classics (1948 - 1950)

Cecil James McNeely (Los Angeles, Estados Unidos, 29 de abril de 1927), más conocido como Big Jay McNeely,1 es un saxofonista tenor de rock 'n' roll, también conocido como el Rey del Honkin' Tenor Sax (honk viene a significar bocina o bocinazo).
Inspirado por hombres como Lester Young, Illinois Jacquet o Coleman Hawkins, empezó a tocar con su hermano mayor, Robert McNeely (que tocaba el saxo barítono). En sus primeras grabaciones, estuvo acompañado por el batería Johnny Otis, participando en "Barrel House Stomp". Al poco tiempo, Savoy Records firmó con Big Jay un contrato de grabación. El jefe de la discográfica, Herman Lubinsky, sugirió el nombre artístico de Big Jay McNeely.
Bio completa


Cecil James McNeely (born April 29, 1927, Watts, Los Angeles, California),[1] known as Big Jay McNeely, is an American rhythm and blues saxophonist.
Inspired by Illinois Jacquet and Lester Young, he teamed with his older brother Robert McNeely, who played baritone saxophone, and made his first recordings with drummer Johnny Otis, who ran the Barrelhouse Club that stood only a few blocks from McNeely's home.[1] Shortly after he performed on Otis's "Barrel House Stomp." Ralph Bass, A&R man for Savoy Records, promptly signed him to a recording contract. Bass's boss, Herman Lubinsky, suggested the stage name Big Jay McNeely because Cecil McNeely did not sound commercial. McNeely's first hit was "The Deacon's Hop," an instrumental which topped the Billboard R&B chart in early 1949.
