Last week I introduced Bruce Raeburn who is the curator of the Hogan Jazz Archive.

This week I would like to post about his father Boyd Raeburn.

Also I will introduce Ginnie powell who was the singer of his band.

Stan Kenton orchestra and June Christy at the Palladium. 1946. Photographer: Gene Lester.

Boyd Raeburn band is not as popular as Stan Kenton and Woody Herman.

Many years ago a wonderful album of Boyd Raeburn was on sale in Japan.

I have owned “The progressive Big Band.”

Please listen to the first tune included in this record first.

先週、Hogan Jazz Archiveの学芸員であるBruce Raeburn氏を紹介しました。

今週は彼の父であるBoyd Raeburnについて投稿したいと思います。

又、Boyd Raeburn楽団に所属していた歌手Ginnie Powell(母)の歌唱も紹介します。

日本ではBoyd Raeburn楽団はStan Kenton楽団や Woody Herman楽団ほど人気がありません。

かなり以前になりますがBoyd Raeburn楽団の素晴らしいアルバムが日本で販売されていました。

このレコード「 The progressive Big Band」は未だ処分していませんでした。

まずはこのレコードに収録されている最初の曲をお聞き下さい。
