Hello-I have been working on this project for a number of years (amongst
other things) The following text is my liner notes and all the tracks from
14 discs of the set. It's a lot - but was a lot of work to put it all
together-Mickey


       Ella Fitzgerald frequently had accompaniment by a bewildering array
of great musicians including Billy Kyle, John Kirby, Red Norvo and so many
more. And of course she started with Chick Webb, but that was a year after
the period that this volume covers. Though Ella inspired this set, she
won't be found until volume two. Born in 1905, Chick had an amazing but very
brief career, and was first recording in 1927 and continued until 1939 when
his tuberculosis of the spine finally claimed his life. He soldiered on with
his uplifting music, often leaving him exhausted and passing out at the end
of a set. Vocalists in the early days were Taft Jordan, Charles Linton,
and Ella joined in 1935. In researching this project I discovered that Billy
Kyle was ubiquitous in the thirties, being featured by Louis Armstrong, John
Kirby, Harry Sosnik, Mills Blue Rhythm Band, Milt Herth Trio, Jimmy Mundy,
Vic Schoen, Mezz Mezzrow and Henry 'Red' Allen. As a result, the concept for
this compilation grew to expand to include all John Kirby's recordings (at
least from my collection), and everything with Billy Kyle whether as solo or
sideman. Decca 2640 is unusual, being the only Kyle Trio record ever
recorded without a vocal : Dave Barbour-g/ Marty Kaplan-sb/ O'Neill
Spencer-d. O'Neill's name will come up many times over the course of this
compilation, as well as trombonist Claude Jones. Trumpeter Bobby Stark
possibly is on the sessions with Bessie Brown. Bessie was born in Ohio in
1890. She had a career in music from 1925 - 1929, with very good musicians
backing her up. He also played with Horace Henderson, Fletcher Henderson's
bands, the Chocolate Dandies, Putney Dandridge, and Ella's Famous Orchestra.
Delmar Kaplan played withTracy-Brown's Orchestra in 1928, along with Bill
Anthens on trombone. Anthens would later accompany Ella Mae Morse many years
later. Delmar went on to play in the Dorsey Brothers Band, and Ray Noble's
American Orchestra, and Glenn Miller's band. Ray had moved to the US in late
1934, and because of musician's union rules, he could only take his
drummer/manager Bill Harty, so he hired American musicians. Bill Anthens
went on to play with Freddie Slack in the forties. ~Mickey Clark

This volume continues with Taft Jordan, John Trueheart and John Kirby with

Kirby-sb Taft Jordan, John Kirby and Hilton Jefferson played with Chick

Fletcher Henderson (this volume)and Cab Calloway (on volume 3 and 4). Taft
Jordan Jr. was born on February 15, 1915 in Florence, South Carolina. Louis
Jordan was not related to Taft Jordan. Louis was born in Brinkley, Arkansas
in 1908. Taft Jordan was a member of the Washboard Rhythm Kings, who
recorded quite extensively, but their records are very hard to find, most
being on a rare 23,000 Victor series.In 1933, Taft Jordan joined the Chick
Webb Orchestra and stayed to play with Ella Fitgerald's Famous Orchestra,
after Webb's passing in 1939. He joined Duke Ellington for four years in
1943. He toured Europe, first with Don Redman, and then with Benny Goodman
in the 1950's. He was in the stage band on Broadway in the 1960's,
performing "Hello, Dolly". Ella Fitzgerald was born in 1917, and joined
Chick Webb's band in 1935. Her first vocal in this collection is in 1936.
She recorded two sides with Benny goodman for Victor in 1936, but she had a
contract with Decca records at the time, and the record label states "with
vocal refrain." This was a common occurrance in the twenties but by the
thirties, the vocalists were almost always given label credit. Chick Webb's

Pickers and Fletcher Henderson (please see volume 1), with Chick Webb's band
starting in 1934 (on volume 2) until June 1936, when he was replaced with
Nat Story. He played with Bing Crosby and Don Redman's Orchestra in this
volume, doing 'Lawd you Made The Night Too Long', and is also with Jelly
Roll Morton's New Orleans Jazzmen and with Louis Armstrong on tracks 14 and
15. on this volume, with Don Redman including the Brunswick recording of
'Chant Of The Weed'and plays with Harlan Lattimore's Connie's Inn Orchestra
on volume 5 on the Columbia recording of 'Chant Of The Weed.'
Ella Fitzgerald was born on April 25, 1917, in Newport News, Virginia. She
was the daughter of a commonlaw couple William Fitzgerald and Temperance
"Tempie" Henry. Sometime around 1920, her parents split up and her Mom met
a Portuguese immigrant named Joseph Da Silva,[3] moved to Yonkers. Ella's
half sister, Frances Da Silva, was born in 1923. 1925 found the family on
School Street, in an Italian area. She did well in grade school, ending up
at Franklin Junior High School in 1929. By the age of nine, she grew to love
dancing, and performed on the way to school for her friends. Her parents
were active at Bethany African Methodist Episcopal Church, where she got a
Christian education, and where she was exposed to music. She adored jazz
recordings by Louis Armstrong, Bing Crosby, and The Boswell Sisters. Connee
Boswell was a great inspiration for her and later said "My mother brought
home one of her records, and I fell in love with it...I tried so hard to
sound just like her."
At the age of fifteen, her mother died from injuries sustained in a car
accident, leaving her in the care of her abusive step-father until 1933,
when she moved to her aunt's house in Harlem. Soon, school became less
important to her, and she started as a lookout in a bordello.
  After a while, she was placed in the Colored Orphan Asylum in Riverdale in
the Bronx, and then to the New York Training School for Girls, a reformatory
school. By 1935, at the age of 18, she started singing with Chick Webb's
band.

Ella With A Twist #4 Recorded 1941 - 1947 CD253D

             This volume continues with Hilton Jefferson with Cab Calloway's
Orchestra. Born in Danbury, Connecticut, 1903, Hilton Jefferson was an alto
saxophonist born in perhaps best known for leading the saxophone section
from 1940–1949 in the Cab Calloway band. Said to have been "a soft, delicate
saxophone player, with an exquisite sensibility." Jefferson began his
professional career as a banjoist in 1925, with Julian Arthur's Orchestra in
Philadelphia, soon switching permanently to alto and joining Claude Hopkin's
band in 1929. Through the 30s played with Chick Webb, Fletcher Henderson,
Benny Carter, Henry 'Red' Allen and McKinney's Cotton Pickers. In the early
fifties he performed with Duke Ellington, replacing Willie Smith, but chose
to become a bank guard to get a more regular income. He continued to perform
In the 1950s, with Rex Stewart and alumni of the Fletcher Henderson band,
and with drummer Harry Dial and Noble Sissle. He was inspired by Benny
Carter, a musician four yoears his junior. Cab Calloway, v, dir:

Carter, Edgar Battle, Buster Harding, Don Redman, a. Ella
sang on the streets of Harlem in the early thirties and made her debut on
the stage at the Apollo Theatre for an amateur night in August of 1934. She
chose the songs 'Judy' and 'The Object of My Affection' winning first prize.
Unfortunately, because of her disheveled appearance, an additional prize of
performing at the Apollo for a week was denied her. In 1935,she performed
with the Tiny Bradshaw Band for a week gig at the Harlem House, where she
met Chick Webb. Singer with the Chick Webb Band, Charlie Linton encouraged
the matchup and the diamond in the rough was about to get polished, with
Chick Webb's guidance. A gig at Yale University followed and history was set
in motion. It was her hit of 'A-Tisket A-Tasket' that launched her career.
In 1936, she formed 'Ella Fitzgerald and Her Savoy Eight' with Taft
Jordan-t/ Sandy Williams-tb/ Pete Clark-cl/ Teddy McRae-ts-bar/ Tommy
Fulford-p/ John Trueheart-g/ Beverley Peer-sb/ Chick Webb-d. In May of 1937,

Ella With A Twist #5 Recorded 1941 - 1947 CD253E
      Ella would have associations with various vocal groups-the Delta
Rhythm boys, the Ink Spots, the Day Dreamers and the Four Keys. 1943's 'Cow
Cow Boogie' is one of the earliest recordings she did with the Ink Spots. On
this disc, you will find her singing with Johnny Long, Randy Brooks, and
VicSchoen with 'Flying Home' - an early scat vocal, and Billy Kyle. Billy
also backed up Teddy Grace, Mildred Bailey , and other singers. Sub-themes
of this set is Billy Kyle and Claude Jones. Claude was with Harlan
Lattimore's band and is heard on 'Chant of the Weed,' and Billy Kyle is with
Rex Stewart's Big Four on two sides from the HRS label in 1947 - Flim Flam
and Loopin' Lobo. Cuts 11 and 22 feature a singular record with the Billy
Kyle trio, Finishin' Up A Date and Between Sets. Rust shows this to be the
only record - at least before 1943 - of Kyle's trio playing without a vocal.
In the fifties, Kyle would be playing with Louis Armstrong's All Stars.
Track one has Ella with Eddie Barefield-as/ Tommy Fulford-p/ Ulysses
Livingston-g/ Beverley Peer-sb/ Bill Beason-d. Teddy Grace, born in 1905 in
Arcadia, Louisiana and was twenty six before she performed in public, having
been dared to sing with a band. She sang with Blue Steele's Orchestra, Al
Stanley's Arcadians, Al Katz's Kittens, Bob Crosby and Lou Holden’s
Disciples of Rhythm. A move to New York followed and she sang with Mal
Hallett's Orchestra and made a number of recordings with the band from
February to October of 1937, for Decca. She had a number of sessions as a
leader, from 1937 - 1940. Some are presented here, because of the presence
of Billy Kyle. Decca didn't support her interest in jazz singing, and she
quit the music business in 1940. By 1943, she joined the WACS, singing at
bond rallies and other functions, to such an extent that she lost her voice,
preventing her from talking for six months. She never sang again as her
singing voice never came back. Louis Bacon was with Louis Armstrong,
Benny Carter and Chick Webb in the early thirties. Included are two sides
by him recorded in Paris in 1939 for the Swing label. Born in 1904, he
played trumpet and sang. In 1938, he, and O'Neill Spencer, like Chick Webb,
who was afflicted with the disease from childhood, contracted tuberculosis,
but was playing again in 1939 and toured Europe with Willie Lewis and Freddy
Johnson. HARLAN LATTIMORE AND HIS CONNIE'S INN ORCHESTRA-Don

Ella with A Twist #6 Recorded 1938 - 1940 CD253F

This album is devoted to Billy Kyle, John Kirby and O'Neill Spencer and the
different bands they played with. Billy Kyle's band accompanied Ella in
1946. The story that has come out of this project is about illness.
Tuberculosis. Chick Webb had contracted the diesase as a child, and his
foray into drumming was as a therepy for the spinal issues he had to deal
with. It was felt that the rigorous physical activity wou help to 'loosen
his spine,' which was curved because of the effects of tuberculosis. Even
John Kirby who had diabetes, had his health challenges. Born in 1908, he was
adopted out as a baby and brought up by a minister and his wife. His birth
name was John Kirk. At the age of nine, he took up the trombone and in 1927,
trombonist Jimmy Harrison suggested that he switch to tuba, which was still
popular at the time. Thelma Terry and her Playboys was led by a female
string bass player who had a very young Gene Krupa in her band. They waxed
seven sides in 1928. Other string bass leaders were Oliver Bibb and His Joy
Boys in ca. 1929, London based Spike Hughes,and Walter Page (bb-sb-bar).
Slam Stewart recorded with Slim Gaillard but never seems to have directed a
band. Maybe if Ella Fitzgerald had partnered with Slam Stewart they could be
called Slam 'n Ella. Maybe not.

It seems that John Kirby was the only bass playing band leader during the
swing era. He did have formal training with Professor Powell Gibson and was
knowledgeable about classical music, and interested in playing the notes as
written. Anitra's Dance is a testament to his subtle blend of modern chamber
jazz and classical music. At the age of fifteen, he embarked on a musical
career, leaving school behind. By the age of twenty four, he had graduated
to the New York music scene. John Kirby's first recording was with Bill
Brown and his Brownies in 1929 for Brunswick. At that time he was still
playing tuba as well as string bass. I don't have the 78s from that session,
but on 'Zonky,' Kirby plays very strong tuba, switches to string bass
midstream and finishes again with tuba. An inspiring precurser to what was
to come. He would record with Fletcher Henderson (first playing tuba then
graduating to string bass), Red Allen, Mezz Mezzrow, Wingy Manone, Mildred
Bailey and Ethel Waters. He was taking bass lessions from Wellman Braud and
Pops Foster and opted to focus on the bass after 1932. 1934 found him
playing with Chick Webb's band, but he was desired so much as a session
musician that he can be found all over the place. July of 1935 found him
recording on Teddy Wilson's first session with his orchestra, and by January
1937, he was in a session with Billie Holiday when she organized her own
orchestra. He started as leader at the Onyx Club. His association with
Maxine Sullivan, Midge Williams and Teddy Grace would follow. I have
included both their Vocalion and Decca recordings of Loch Lomond. Midge
Williams would also record with Teddy Wilson. Charlie Shavers replaced Frank
Newton on trumpet, resultin in the ensemble that you hear on this volume.
John Kirby would be gone by forty-three years of age, leaving a legacy of
his wonderful chamber jazz. ~ Mickey Clark

Ella With A Twist #7 Recorded 1937 - 1944 CD253G

This volume starts in May of 1941 with the full John Kirby Sextet Charlie
Shavers-t/ Buster Bailey-cl/ Russell Procope-as/ Billy Kyle-p/ John
Kirby-sb/ O'Neill Spencer-d Born in 1917 - the same year as Ella, trumpeter
Charlie Shavers had worked with Tiny Bradshaw and Lucky Millinder before
joining Kirby. Luckey Millinder has recently gained attention by his
recordings with Sister Rosetta Tharpe, who was inducted into the Grammy Hall
Of Fame in 2014, and into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame in 2017. In October
of 1941 Specs Powell-d replaces O'Neill Spencer and arranger Lou Singer
joined the band. O'Neill had tuberculosis and had to take a year off but
returned in 1942. Larry Adler is best known from his later recordings but
was already recording by the late twenties.
Rudy Vallée had connected him to a theatre gig, resulting in orchestra
leader Paul Ash who got a placement for him as "a ragged urchin, playing for
pennies". I have two takes by Grace Hayes of 'I Can't Give You Anything
But Love' take four has Del Staigers, while take three has an obligato by
Larry Adler. Born in Baltimore,Maryland in 1914, he was best known for his
harmonica playing, but was also proficient at the piano. In 1994, he was an
integral part of the album 'The Glory of Gershwin', which was promoted by a
series of live concerts where he played the piano and harmonica at the same
time. Including Peter Gabriel, Oleta Adams, Elton John, Sting, Jon Bon Jovi
and Richie Sambora, Meat Loaf, Kate Bush, Sinéad O'Connor, Robert
Palmer,Cher, Kate Bush, Elvis Costello, Courtney Pine, Issy Van Randwyck,
Lisa Stansfield and Carly Simon, who sang Gershwin songs with Adler adding
harmonica solos with an orchestra. Cerys Matthews and Larry paired for a
2001 television special, the Cerys and Larry Show.
The last four sides are by Bob Howard's Orchestra Howard's real name was
Howard Joyner. His reason for the change was simple. He wanted to be next to
Lena Horne in Brian Rust's Personality Book. He wasn't there - I looked.
Bob's orchestra had Manny Klein-t/ Benny Carter-t-as/ Buster Bailey-cl/
Teddy Wilson-p/ Clarence Holiday-g/ Elmer James-sb/ Cozy Cole-d when he
strted in 1935. Ben Webster-ts would join slightly after and then Rex
Stewart. And then Bunny Berigan-t/ Artie Shaw-cl/ Babe Russin-ts/ Frank
Signorelli-p. O'Neill Spencer started with him in 1938. Around 1936, he had
both Stan King-d and Dave Barbour-g in his band. The sides on this disc are
all from the last session of this band. Frank Froeba was replaced by
Billy Kyle in July of 1938 the personnel of which featured Billy Kyle-p/
Teddy Bunn-g/ Haig Stephens-sb / O'NEILL SPENCER-d ~ Mickey Clark

Ella With A Twist #8 Recorded 1937 - 1952 CD253H

This volume continues with Billy Kyle and O'Neill Spencer playing with Milt
Herth's outfit O'Neill does all the vocals. Frank Newton was Charlie
Shaver's predecessor in the Kirby outfits. He played with Cecil Scott and
his Bright Boys in 1929, Sam Wooding's Orchestra from 1929 - 1934 in Benny
Carter's Orchestra in 1932, Bessie Smith in 1933, Teddy Hill, Mezz Mezzrow
and his Swing Band and Art Karle in 1936, Charlie Barnet's band and Jerry
Kruger and her Knights of Rhythm in 1937, Buster Bailey's Rhythm Busters,
and replaced Hoy Lips Page for Billie Holiday's Commodore session in April
of 1939, as well as having his own band, Frank Newton and his Uptown
Serenaders from 1937 - 1939, The Port of Harlem Jazzmen in 1939, Maxine
Sullivan, Teddy Wilson's Orchestra, just to name a few. Born in 1908, he was
a strong advocate for black rights, and was a member of the communist party.
Even Larry Adler (see disc 7) was accused of being a communist. Milt Herth's
specialty was the Hammond organ which was new in 1935. Amplified pianos were
already around in 1930, with instruments such as the Neo-Bechstein Grand and
the Storeytone piano.In the mid thirties, there were amplified reed organs
such as the Everett Orgatron. The Neo-Bechstein Grand had no soundboard -
just a microphone for the audio. Both the storeytone piano and the Everett
had pickups like a guitar. The Storeytone had a speaker behind the strings
which resulted in a very long sustain capabilities. This album features the
first recordings Ella made with Sy Oliver. Starting on disc eleven, the
focus will be on Sy Oliver, and his work as musician and arranger for Jimmie
Lunceford, Tommy Dorsey, followed by his own orchestra. Ella really is
coming into her own distinctive sound about this time. I feel that in her
time with Chick Webb, she didn't sing the songs that required subtlety. In
the mid forties, she had a little bit more capacity to lay back and sing
more gently and fluidly. Of course, the development of amplifiers was well
on it's way by the mid thirties, but having a monitor so one can her one's
self over a large orchestra was a fairly new thing, and allowed for a much
more intimate style that she would use to great effect in the Gershwin and
other sonbook albums she would record so much later. ~Mickey Clark

Ella With A Twist #9 Recorded 1940 - 1953 CD253I

        Louis Jordan was born on July 8, 1908, in Brinkley, Arkansas, son of
a James Aaron Jordan, a music teacher and bandleader for the Brinkley Brass
Band and the Rabbit's Foot Minstrels. The 'Foot' was a travelling minstrel
show founded by Pat Chapelle, a theatre owner and entrepreneur from
Jacksonville, Florida in 1900. Chapelle was instrumental in forming
'LaVilla' an African-American region of Jacksonville. A talented
musician, he played guitar, piano and was renowned for playing the banjo.
By 1913, blues singer Ida Cox had joined the troupe, and Louis was to start
his music lessons two years later, at seven years of age. Other performers
for the 'Foot' were Arthur "Happy" Howe, Ma Rainey, Ida Cox, Bessie Smith,
Butterbeans and Susie, Tim Moore, Big Joe Williams, Louis Jordan, Brownie
McGhee, Rufus Thomas, and Charles Neville. A few years later, Louis
continued his studies at Arkansas Baptist College in Little Rock. The
following personnel includes a twenty-one year old Louis. Chick Webb's
Orchestra in 1929 - this session would have Ward Pinkett-t-v/ Edwin
Swayzee-t/ Robert Horton-tb/ Hilton Jefferson-Louis Jordan-cl-as/ Elmer
Williams-cl-ts/ Don Kirkpatrick-p/ John Trueheart-bj-g/ Elmer James-bb/
Chick Webb-d Louis Jordan-ts was with Chick Webb's band on it's first
session with an issued take, replacing Ed Williams, but didn't stay very
long and was gone after recording two titles, returning in October of 1936,
replacing Edgar Sampson-ts-a, but was gone again by February of 1939. 1930
found him in Philadelphia with Charlie Gaines's Orchestra. In 1932, a trip
to New York with the band resulted in a recording session with Clarence
William's band.He played in Louis Armstrong's band in 1932 and replaced Pete
Clark in Ella Fitzgerald's Savoy Eight in May of 1937 and would remain until
Hilton Jefferson replaced him in 1938. He had formed his Elks Rendezvous
Band in December of 1938, backing up vocalist Rodney Sturgis. His lineup was
Courtney Williams-t/ Louis Jordan-as/ Lem Johnson-ts/ Clarence-Johnson-p/
Charlie Drayton-sb/ Walter Martin-d. In 1936, he re-connected with Chick
Webb, joined his band and did his first vocal, 'Gee, But You're Swell,' and
made a foray into being the frontman for the band. As Chick Webb had a
spinal deformity from tuberculosis, a necessary position in the band was
filled with Louis Jordan bringing energy and humor to an already feel-good
band. His band was invited to open for the Mills Brothers at the
Capitol Theatre. This explains the presence of the Mills Brothers in his
radio show 'Here Comes Louis Jordan,' as well as Dorothy Donegan. ~ Mickey

Louis left Webb's band in 1938 to form a new band at the the Elk's
Rendezvous in Harlem, making a number of recordings in 1939. Louis
Jordan-cl-as-bar-v-dir: Courtney Williams-t/ Lemuel Johnson-ts/ Clarence
Johnson-p/ Charlie Drayton-sb/ Walter Martin-d The name Tympany Five came
in December of 1939. In November of 1939, Stafford Simon would replace
Lemuel Johnson on tenor sax. Female vocalist Yack Taylor would join in 1940.
March, 1940, Kenneth Hollon-ts, would replace Stafford Simon, and Arnold

Bartley/sb/ Walter Martin/d. His R&B and country music would have been very
popular during the war as being distinctively American. His 1945
recording of Caldonia was a million seller. From 1946 -1960, he set up home
in Phoenix, Arizona. 1954 saw his last side for Decca and started with
Aladdin Records. By 1956, he was with Mercury. In 1987, he was inducted
into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. His life story would be written into
the musical 'Five Guys Named Moe' in 1990. The Delta Rhythm Boys, formed at
Langston University in Langston, Oklahoma, in 1934. Bass Lee Gaines was
asked to select singers for the group. He chose first tenor Elmaurice
Miller, second tenor Traverse Crawford, and baritone Essie Atkins to be the
original lineup for the group. Lee would still be there in 1987. First tenor
Miller would stay until 1944, replaced with Carl Jones until 1960, replaced
with Herb Coleman, until 1974, then Walter Trammell until 1987. First tenor
Clinton Holland was with the group from 1940 - 1944. The original secontd
tenor was Traverse Crawford, replaced with Ray Beatty in 1975, who stayed
with the goup until 1987 The original baritone was Essie Atkins, replaced in
1940 by Harry Lewis, who was replaced by Kelsey Pharr in 1943, who stayed
until 1960.Cliff Holland stood in for Kelsey Pharr, and Hugh Bryant took the

University, under the names Frederick Hall Quinetette and the New Orleans
Quintette. Frederick Hall had been the director at Jackson University and
Dillard's musical departments. Ella had sung with Jerry Gray's Orchestra in
1953. A composer and arranger, Gray had worked with Glenn Miller. Jerry
is best known for 'A String Of Pearls,' 'Here We Go Again' and 'Caribbean
Clipper, 'all recorded by Glenn Miller's band and others.Cuts 24 and 25 are
here to show what else was happening with the Jerry Gray's band - aside from
the ones with Ella Fitzgerald. ~ Mickey Clark

      I couldn't leave out Leonard Feather as he was such an integral part
of the jazz scene in the forties. This volume kicks off with 'A Suite in
Four Comfortable Quaters - a piano duo with Dan Burley. Sy Oliver started
away back in 1929 with Zach Whyte's Chocolate Beau Brummels. I have included
a Biltmore issue of West End Blues, featuring trumpet work by Sy himself. He
was with Zach Whyte from January, 1929 until November,1931. He was with
Jimmie Lunceford from June of 1930, playing trumpet in their first session
for Victor in1930, until Gerald Wilson took over the trumpet seat in August
of 1939, with
        Sy was arranging only after that session. Gerald Wilson would also
arrange for Lunceford. Sy was with Tommy Dorsey from May 1939,
continuing to arrange sporadically for Lunceford until 1942 during which
time, arrangements were also done by Bill Finegan, who along with Eddie
Sauter, formed the Sauter-Finegan Orchestra. Sy Oliver also did vocals but
it was not his particular forte. Vocals were mostly by Dan Grissom, and
occasionally by Trummy Young. Melvin James "Sy" Oliver was born in 1910 in
Battle Creek, Michigan to a piano teacher mother, and his father who was
talented musician, playing multiple instruments. He demonstrated saxophones
when they were rarely used outside of marching bands. Sy left home at 17 to
play with Zack Whyte and his Chocolate Beau Brummels and later with Alphonse
Trent, singing, playing trumpet and arranging. He became known for his
"growling" horn. He wrote many songs including "Yes Indeed" and "Swingin' on
Nothin'" and "T'ain't What You Do (It's the Way That You Do It)", which he
co-wrote with Trummy Young in 1939. In 1933, he joined Lunceford's unit and
played until February of 1940, when he started devoting his energy to
arranging such tunes as "My Blue Heaven" and "Ain't She Sweet", as well as
his original composition "For Dancers Only" which became Lunceford's theme
song. Pianist Ed Wilcox was to arrang the ballads while Sy was given the job
of arranging the up-tempo numbers. He was doing vocals with Jimmie
Lunceford, and arranging until 1939, when he was hired by Tommy Dorsey who
offered a pay increase of over $5,000 a year, becoming part of a small group
of African-Americans to work with a white band, on the heels of Goodman's
hiring of Fletcher Henderson. His arrangements were the basis of Dorsey's
transition to swing. At the time, other arrangers with Dorsey would be Axel
Stordahl, for ballads. You'll find some of his arrangements with Tommy
Dorsey on volume twelve of this set. ~ Mickey Clark

Sy Oliver continued with Tommy Dorsey, sharing arranging with Axel Stordahl
until 1946 when he formed his own band. I have included both Tommy Dorsey's
and Gene Krupa's recordings of Oliver's composition Opus One, with the
vocal sung by Anita O'Day. One of his final his with Tommy Dorsey was his
1946 arrangement of
'On the Sunny Side of the Street,' which proved to be a big hit. He went on
to be musical director for Decca throughout the fifties. You will find his
band accompanying various vocalists such as Ethel Mermen, Ray Borger, Sammy
Davis Jr. Jack Owens and the Mills Brothers on this disc and disc 14. He
arranged an album for Frank Sinata in 1961, 'I Remember Tommy,' a tribute
in remembrance of their time with Tommy Dorsey.June 26, 1950, Sy Oliver and
his Orchestra recorded the first American versions of 'C'est Si Bon and 'La
Vie En Rose' with Louis Armstrong, both can be found on volume 14 of this
set.In 1974 he was playing every night with a small combo at the Rainbow
Room in Manhattan, continuing until his retirement in 1984, occasionally
taking time off to make festival or other dates, including at the Roseland
Ballroom, again in New York. Composer-pianist-vocalist John Milton "Jack"
Owens was born in 1912, in Tulsa, Oklahoma,
and had started with small, local Chicago radio stations holding up applause
signs then went on to vaudeville, evolving to radio fame on NBC and ABC as a
singing star. His music found it's way into film scores, being used in
1941's San Antonio Rose and 1953's 'From Here to Eternity.' He starred in
'Don McNeil's Breakfast Club,' the longest running network radio show, and
became known as "The Cruising Crooner" with his routine of singing directly
to an audience member, sitting on their laps, causing blushes and giggles.
He signed with Decca in 1948 and was one of the most popular of male singers
during the swing era. His songs were performed by Gene Autry,Pat Boone, Nat
"King" Cole, Perry Como, Bing Crosby, Woody Herman, Don Ho, Ferlin Husky,
Spike Jones, Sammy Kaye, Kay Kyser, Freddy Martin, The Merry Macs,Glenn
Miller, Vaughn Monroe,The Platters, Roy Rogers, Dinah Shore,Frank Sinatra
Orrin Tucker, Andy Williams and many more. He also had his own show, The
'Jack Owens Show' also known as 'The Brunch Bunch,' an early TV show, and
received two Emmy nominations. ~ Mickey Clark

Ella With A Twist #13 Recorded 1939-1949 CD253M

Billy May-t-a-v was born in 1916 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He started off
as a tuba player in his high school band. by 1933, he was playing with Gene
Olsen's Polish-American Orchestra, and other local bands, with Sy adding
trumpet to his skills. After hearing Charlie Barnet on the radio, he met
Barnet and said he would like to write arrangements for his band, and he
replaced Johnny Mendell in July of 1939.The lineup in Barnett's band at the
time was Charlie Barnet-ss-as-ts-v-dir/ Bob Burnet-Billy May-John Owen-t/
Ben Hall-Don Ruppersberg-Bill Robertson-tb/ Kurt Bloom-Gene Kinsey-as/ Don
McCook-James Lamare-ts/ Bill Miller-p/ Bus Etri-g/ Phil Stevens-sb/ Ray
Michaels-d/ The results of the collaboration were May's arrangement of
'Cherokee,' a satiric song, 'The Wrong Idea,' which lampooned the 'Mickey
Mouse' and sweet bands of the era. I hope you like my mix of the Cherokee
and Redkin Rhumba - they seem to go together. Cherokee was written by
British bandleader Ray Noble, and Redskin Rhumba was written by Charlie
Barnet, using the pseudonym of Dale Bennett. Billy May is best known for his
association with
the Looney Tunes series of cartoons, and he recorded a number of sides with
Mel Blanc, issued on 78 rpm.
By 1940, he left Barnet's band and started arranging for Glenn Miller, but
found it a hard go. I imagine that egos got in the way, and many of his
arrangements for Miller were never recorded.
May conducted and arranged for the Harold Arlen Songbook for Ella's Verve
double album, all recorded in 1960 and 1961. The Gershwin Song Book #1 was
directed by Norman Granz and for Gershwin #2 the orchestra and arrangements
were by Nelson Riddle. 'Here We Go Again' was composed by Jerry Gray, one of
the arrangers in the Glenn Miller Orchestra, and Gray also backed Ella for a
number of sides. Two are on disc 9 of thei set, and two. The recording
reached # 25 on the Billboard pop singles chart in April, 1944 in a one-week
chart run. 'Here we Go Again' was also performed by Glenn Miller with the
Army Air Force Band. The recording ban in 1942 really threw a wrench into
the works for the big bands, and they couldn't record again until a year or
two later. The issue of the song was dlayed until 1944 because of the ban.
Mildred Bailey returns with the Ellis Larkins Trio. Ella had recorded with
Ellis Larkins in 1980 for 'Ella Sings Gershwin.' He was the composer as well
of 'I Don't Want To Miss Mississippi'
The last tracks on this volume return the focus again to Sy Oliver, with
vocals by Billie Holiday and Louis Armstrong.

Smith-d This volume is again mainly devoted to with his own orchestra
and features vocals by Louis Armstrong, Ella,Gary Crosby, Sammy Davis
Jr.,,Trudy Richards the Mills Brothers and Billy Kyle with Louis' All-Stars
in the fifties.This disc represents another 'prequel' if you will. Jerry
Lewis recorded with Buddy Bregman's Orchestra with whom Ella would later
record the Cole Porter Songbook.Mildred Bailey recorded a number of tracks
with Ellis Larkins Trio, you'll find them on volume 13. Ella would record
Ella Sings Gershwin album with Ellis Larkins in 1963. The 78 sides I have
included here from the Verve label were also on a long play from 1956 - Ella
Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong.Ella would continue her association with
Verve Records. I In 1960 and 1961 she would record the Harold Arlen Songbook
with Billy May's Orchestra and the Gershwin Songbook with Norman Granz in
1959, and in 1976, she would record the Cole Porter Songbook with Buddy
Bregman's Orchestra. At the first Grammy Awards, in 1958, Ella won her
first two Grammys making history as the first African-American woman to win
the award for best individual jazz performance, and best female vocal
performance, for the two 'Songbook' projects 'Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Duke
Ellington Song Book' and 'Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Irving Berlin Song
Book', respectively.Unlike many singers, Ella's fluidity of tone and
subtlety only grew as time went on. To my mind, the recorded legacy of all
the artists in this set gives them immortality. Both Ella and Billy Kyle
were diabetic, and it just makes it more amazing that there is just so much
music that is left for us to enjoy.We've seen Chick Webb and O'Neill Spencer
striving to help their tuburculosis by drumming, and creating joy for all
around them. I hope that you enjoy this voyage through time with the artists
that Ella collaborated with. It's been a monumental task pulling it all
together from my record collection and the stories that came from all these
wonderful performers ~ Mickey Clark
