TBone Paxton with the RJ Spangler Quintet
John Tbone Paxton Takes the Spotlight in Back in Your Own Backyard

Following in his fathers musical steps, Tbone is a true son of the jazz age. He has played with many of Detroits great band leaders. Fans of Detroit Music Factoryrecording group Planet D Nonet know Tbone as the bands featured singer and trombone soloist, but he has also shared stages with such prominent jazz, blues and R&B luminaries as Earl King, Sir Mack Rice, Pinetop Perkins and Eddie Palmieri.

The tracks on Back in Your Own Backyard are a selection of pre-WWII jazz and transitional rhythm and blues tunes. Theyre not the most famous tunes, but theyre some of the most moving. This isnt Gershwin or Cole Porter; these are tunes from the dark corners of The Great American Songbook, or as Tbone likes to call them, the non-standard standards.

Many of the tunes on Back in Your Own Backyard were curated for their powerful lyrics, and Room With a View of the Blues is no exception. Its a song that Tbone performed regularly with one of the worlds great soul and bluesmen, the late Johnny Adams. It speaks to the loneliness of finding yourself in a place where youre not with another person, and the longing for that missing connectedness. The lyrics are heavy with a sense of loss, and Tbones interpretation is fraught with honesty and emotion.
