As calm, cool, collected, and creative as one man can be.
More hip than hip. An icon. A genuine music maker. A San Antonio treasure. The story of, and from, Vernon "Spot" Barnett, as we remember the saxophonist, bandleader, and vocalist on a rebroadcast of the South Texas Jazz Project.

San Antonio jazz, R&B legend Vernon ‘Spot’ Barnett dead at 83

With heavy hearts, we say goodbye to a San Antonio legend. Spot Barnett's creative energy will live on in all who keeps his music alive.

Saxophone player Barnett, who led the house band at the Ebony Lounge in the 1950s, had an outsized influence on the city's music scene.
