Artist's Description

Dexter Payne came to the Olmsted Camp with the Lionel Young Band for a whale of a concert the night of July 4th. This blues/jazz band with its eclectic mix of styles & sounds played for a small group of Olmsted relatives & a handful of friends, including Ray & me, in a setting nonpareil, high above Cattaraugus Creek, in the Town of Sardinia, in southern Erie County, New York. Dexter has close ties to the Camp ~ he was the long-time companion of the late blues/folk singer Judy Roderick, whose grandfather, artist Harold L. Olmsted, founded the Camp in the early 1900s. Dexter is the group’s reedman ~ plays this golden alto, along with clarinet, baritone sax & harmonica.

The band played for about two hours, & was followed by an in-your-face fireworks display (does this sound dangerous? It was certainly brilliant, & smoky), which rockets were set off from a level bench of land below the Camp, between the buildings & the creek. The most exciting, & perhaps the funniest, fireworks display I’ve ever attended!!

Oxley gets the nod for this one ~ Lionel Young & company are headed for the Mont Tremblant festival in Quebec this weekend (9 ~ 10 July) after a day in Rochester, NY. Mike has been known to attend this fest, but he’ll miss Lionel & Dexter & group. Maybe he can catch up with them in Paris… their next stop….
