Bill Barron

Biography

Expenses Barron was a sophisticated and adventurous tenor saxophonist (doubling on soprano) who by no means compromised his music or received very much acknowledgement. He spent his formative years and beyond in Philadelphia, not really moving to NY until 1958. Barron 1st found the jazz world’s interest through his involvement on the Cecil Taylor day in 1959. After documenting with Philly Joe Jones, Barron co-led an excellent post-bop quartet with Ted Curson. Nevertheless, Barron spent a lot of the rest of his profession as an educator, directing a jazz workshop in the Children’s Museum in Brooklyn, teaching at Town College of NY, and getting the chairman from the music division at Wesleyan University or college. His “day time job” managed to get easy for him to regularly record noncommercial music for Savoy (in 1972 he produced that label’s last jazz record), Dauntless, and Muse. Each one of Expenses Barron’s recordings being a leader uses sibling Kenny Barron (16 years his junior) on piano.
