Local Musician Spotlight: "Dexter Payne"

Aug 17, 2017

Dexter Payne plays the world!  He says his life is “the scenic route, not the toll road.”  Perhaps this needs explanation.

Growing up immersed in music, Dexter was introduced to blues in a summer school band class where he honed his harmonica skills.  He then discovered a jazz radio station where he listened to Miles and Count Basie.  He moved to saxophone but always knew he wanted to play the clarinet.

He moved from blues to swing, back to blues, and then to African music.

You ate…you enjoyed…and you voted…and the winner is…Café Brazil!, who served up a Feijao Bowl, which was a slow braised marinated brisket of beef with red beans, topped with a sweet Cherub tomato, Pasilla chile salsa, sharp cheddar and Italian parsley, served over rice. Congratulations!
