Even though he’s been singing on Minnesota stages for 50 years, Maurice Jacox might have an identity problem.
Is he an R&B screamer? An intimate lounge crooner? The sexy sax man from Willie & the Bees and the Butanes? The singer-actor who staged a Nat King Cole tribute show? The classical wannabe doing “Besame Mucho” with an orchestra? The soul serenader at the New Standards holiday show? An electric flute player in the Electric Flag?
He is all of the above.
