Sadao(渡辺貞夫) lived near the Stable, where Charlie Mariano and Herb Pomeroy started a music school and played jam sessions.

I want to write below about “the Stable”.

In the early 1950s Charlie Mariano suggested to Varty Haroutunian, Herb Pomeroy, and Ray Santisi that they start a school, a workshop, to offer classes and private lessons, and host jam sessions.

They gradually were teaching activity at the Stable, and the musicians kept “Jazz Workshop” as the unofficial club name.

Then the small group grew to a sextet and eventually was playing four nights a week.

Also Pomeroy’s big band started working one night a week in late 1955.

The Stable was an exciting place with enthusiastic listeners.

Everynight Sadao Watanabe went to the Stable ,because his teacher Herb Pomeroy played at the Stable.

On a broadcasting he said Herb’s memory:”When Herb played with Charlie Parker, that night Herb could not sleep with excitement ”.

Here is Jazz Workshop Quintet with Herb Pomeroy play “Moten Swing”.(1955)

I want post in detail at a later date about his achievements.

But for me he had recording an impressive tune.

My guess is that Toshiko Akiyoshi quoted from his tone of as Japanese atmosphere when she produced ‘(孤軍)Kogun’ in her first orchestra recording.

The name of tune was ‘To Taiho’ which had been contained in ‘A Jazz Portrait of Charlie Mariano’.

This song was dedicated to ’Taiho(大鵬)’ who was the grand champion of sumo wrestling in Japan.

His intro sound had replicated the calling voice of sumo wrestling.

I want to express in Japanese.

「ひがーしー、かしーわど。かしーわーど。にーしー、たいほー。たいほー。」

Charlie Mariano (as); Marvin Stamm (tp); Jaki Byard (p); Richard Davis (b); Albert Heath (ds)

Recorded in New York City, July 25 & 26, 1963
