Jazz Birthdays: Mahogany and Guy | July 30, 2012

Today’s birthdays:

Kevin Mahogany 1958

Me and the critics pretty much agree that Kevin Mahogany’s name should have had household-word status by now.  His  is a gorgeous voice somewhere between Joe Williams and Johnny Hartman, and he’s versatile with it, too.

Buddy Guy 1936

Pioneer of Chicago Blues, a master guitarist and showman.  Buddy Guy’s autobiography, When I Left Home: My Story, was released on May 8, 2012 (see my review from June 29).
