Ted brings the sound of the Mississippi Delta
to Western KentuckyListen Now
Mississippi born and raised, Dr. Ted Borodofsky came to Paducah in 1977, bringing with him a love for jazz rooted in dixieland, swing and the inspiration of jazz great Pete Fountain.
He retired from his 38-year practice in ophthalmology in 2015, wasting no time in jumping right into his lifelong passion of playing the clarinet.
Decades of practice under his belt, Ted plays with a mesmerizing Mississippi cadence. He plays locally in swanky nightclubs, ritzy cafes and the occasional area wedding.
No matter his location, Ted blends each of his musical inspirations into a finger-snappin’, toe-tappin’, hummin’-along collection he calls Southern Jazz.
