Yesterday I confirmed the later years of Ziggy Elman.

Unfortunately he had been economically deprived of music life by heart attack in 1956.

He economically distressed.

Meanwhile, a male vocalist who participated in the recording of “And the Angels Sing, has become a co-founder of Capitol Records.

In addition one of the students who taught trumpet in later years has become the founder of A & M Records.

I thought his achievement was not appreciated in Japan.

So I would like to post about his footprints.

Ziggy Elman joined Benny Goodman band in September 1936.

Also Harry James joined Goodman in January 1937.

In those days Harry James and Ziggy Elman and the third trumpeter, Chris Griffin were nicknamed “The Biting Brass.”

昨日Ziggy Elmanの晩年を調べていました。

残念ながら1956年に心臓発作を起こし音楽家として第一線を離れています。

そして経済的に困窮し1968年54歳でお亡くなりなっています。

一方「And the Angels Sing」の録音に参加した男性ボーカリストはキャピトル社の共同設立者になっています。

又晩年にトランペットを教えた生徒の一人がA&Mレーベルの創設者です。

二人に比べ彼の業績は日本では忘れられているようです。

そんな訳で3回ぐらいに分けて彼の足跡を投稿したいと思います。

Ziggy Elmanは1936年9月にBenny Goodmanバンドに加入しました。

翌年1月にはHarry JamesがBenny Goodmanバンドに加わりました。

その当時、Harry JamesとZiggy ElmanにサードトランペッターChris Griffinの陣容は「The Biting Brass」と呼ばれていました。
