You might think that my interest in jazz would have served as a bridge into black culture. When I was interested in Dixieland, I heard Kid Ory play at the Dixieland Jubilee at L.A.'s Shrine Auditorium (and, if memory serves, Sidney Bechet)...

[See, OldBiterofTongue? "Los Everyjuan" does the "I saw so-and-so" so Fk U.]

...but by then Dixieland was mostly white people's music played by white musicians like Bob Crosby, Bobby Hackett, Jack Teagarden, Eddie Miller, and Zutty Singleton. One of my favorite radio shows was "Pete Kelly's Blues," which starred Jack Webb. It featured Dick Cathcart on cornet, but was only broadcast for a few months in 1951 (though in 1955 it was made into a movie).
See the clarinetist: Lee Marvin, M Squad
From Dixieland I glided into swing, but, again, I was exposed mostly to the white bands. My favorites were Woody Herman's Herd and Stan Kenton, and only later did I discover kBasie, Ellington, and Lionel Hampton. As my interests shifted from swing into bebo, however, I began to see a lot of black faces on record jackets. Because I was a trumpet player, I was especially impressed with Dizzy Gillespie and Clifford Brown and Fats Navarro.

When I started going to clubs to hear live jazz, however, the players were white--Gerry Mulligan, Shorty Rogers, Bud Shank, Bob Cooper, and all the ex-Kentonites who played down at the Lighthouse. Later, I learned that Bird and Clifford had played down on Central Avenue, and I had missed them.
--Joe Fitschen, Going Up [again, edited by Mouse for paragraphing]

Another climber from Joe's era, Rick Sylvester, has an ear for jazz to the point that he has been atending the MJF for, oh, about the last forty years straight. He can bend our ears, let me tell you, and I wish he shwould. Matter of fact, I asked him about skiing a bit ago and just got a reply on his adventures this week in Tahoe. Recompense for all that pine needle bagging this fall.

Anyone ever read James Ellroy's LA Quartet, which includes White Jazz?

Hi Mouse.
Thanks for your posts!
I'm a classical musician (bass) and I dig jazz. Even tried adventuring into some of the grooves... in the past.

Let me pick up a line though. Here's a pic of Zutty's:

It's not mysterious. Just takes talent and practice and exposure.

I used to own this LP and practically wore it out. I liked Larry's work on his composition Lines, but can't locate the track...
And for Bit'r, I saw and heard and applauded for the Quartet at 1970's Free Monterey Jazz Festival for Dirtbags Who Can Climb Fences.

MOUSE!

That clip of Ella and Mel Torme might be the finest scat singing I have ever heard! Absolutely brilliant!!

Obviously, Mel and Ella both have perfect pitch. Notice how she just whips off the opening riff in the correct key.

Oh. I stand corrected. Just listened again, they're in the same key as the original intro. So even I could could have got the opening note. However the licks they are singing are so complex, and so pitch perfect, it takes real musicians to pull off something like that.

Dang. Excellent.
