A mural in Brooklyn, NYC of Cecil Payne!

Brooklyn has a number of great street murals, and now for fans of the baritone saxophone there is one featuring the great bop player, Cecil Payne!

I’m not sure of the reasoning behind it or the story, but you can watch a short YouTube video below of the mural being created. The artist is Dave O’Brien, be sure to check out his website for more images of the mural!

If you are in NYC, you can see it for yourself. It’s located at 220 Kosciuszko Street.

Finally a Cecil Payne Transcription!

Thanks goes to the prodigious transcriber, and wonderful baritone saxophonist in his own right, Aaron Lington.
