(Frankie Jaxon on top of the piano)
Today's Christmas track came as a bit of a surprise when I received it a few weeks ago from one of Honey's contributors Bob Linn. Frankie "Half Pint" Jaxon was quite the character and a true entertainer. Jaxon was a skilled dancer, singer , set design and as a blues singer. I had always known him as singing what were called "hokum" songs, basically dirty blues with ragtime style instrumentation. This track Jaxon recorded with Ernest Miller as the "Cotton Top Sanctified Singers" and is a nice simple track recounting the Christmas story. It's a whole lot of fun, and Jaxon's very odd voice is on full display.

Lots of secular blues musicians would record under different names or as part of gospel groups and I think this track is an example of this, as it has very little to do with actual gospel or sanctified singing.10/22/2005 05:53:36 AM|||Anonymous|||Hi, enjoyed your blog/site related to **Christmas** I'm going to add your10/27/2005 01:45:30 AM|||singers|||Hi peter p naik, I came across your site while doing a search on Sexy Celebrities, popular female sigers, dancers, actresses and models.
