Mad dogs and Englishmen

Jon Cleary may have been born in England, but he has clearly found his spiritual home here in New Orleans and we are proud to count him among our own.   The heat seems to agree with him – midday or otherwise, and though he was clearly an accomplished and talented musician when he arrived, he has been burnished by the time spent here toiling under the tropical sun.

He put on a fine show at Voodoo with James Singleton (and recently at Lafayette Square) and is truly one of the world’s great pianists.  Catch him if you can!   And check out his website at  http://www.joncleary.com/ and treat  your ears to  Jon Cleary and the Absolute Monster Gentlemen!
