最近ネットラジオで「Dick Haymes: Sinatra’s Shadow」という放送を聴きました。この番組ではゴードン・ジェンキンス(Gordon Jenkins)についても語られていました。

上記ラジオ放送は  こちら 

Gordon Jenkinsはキャピタル時代のフランク・シナトラとの共演盤が有名ですが、デッカ時代にも有名歌手と多くの名曲を録音しています。

今回、デッカレコード専属時代のGordon Jenkinsが関わった録音からブログを作成しました。

最後に添付したThe Weavers(ピート・シーガーが参加)については門外漢でありますので余計なコメントは記載しておりません。

尚、Gordon Jenkinsについては1年前の拙ブログ(4回連載)も併せてご覧頂ければ嬉しいです。

In 1938, he moved to California, where he worked for Paramount Pictures. In 1939 he became music director for NBC’s Hollywood based west coast division. From 1944 to 1948, he worked on Dick Haymes’ radio show. In 1945, he became a staff conductor for Decca Records. Jenkins soon became Decca’s musical director, and was responsible for bringing The Weavers (a group that included Pete Seeger among its members) to Decca.

I have been posting about “Isham Jones’ tune Blue prelude” in my blog.

Please refer to my past blog.Go Here

Recently, I heard the another recording that Carol Bruce was singing.

Today I would like to post about some recordings and clips by Carol Bruce.

Carol Bruce (November 15, 1919 – October 9, 2007) was an American band singer, Broadway star, and film and television actress.

She began her career as a singer in the late 1930s with Larry Clinton and his band.

Then she joined Red Norvo’s V-Disc sessions.

Also Bruce’s daughter, Julie Nathanson(Julie Coryell ) married jazz guitarist Larry Coryell.

過去のブログで Isham Jonesの名曲「Blue prelude」について投稿しています。⇨こちらをクリックして下さい。

最近、Carol Bruce(歌手であり女優)の「Blue prelude」をよく聞いています。

今日はCarol Bruceの録音並びに映像をブログに添付しました。

Carol Bruceは1930年代後半にLarry Clinton(ラリー・クリントン)バンドの歌手としてデビューしました。

その後、Red Norvo(レッド・ノーボ)率いるメンバーと共にVディスクセッションに参加しています。

今回は「Blue prelude」とVディスクセッションから3曲をお楽しみ下さい。

尚、彼女の愛娘Julie Nathanson(ジュリー・ネイサンソン)はLarry Coryell(ラリー・コリエル)と一時結婚していました。

Gordon Jenkins’ works (1) Blue Prelude

November 07.2017

Photo above of Gordon Jenkins by courtesy of playisteve.com

Last month I posted that Gordon Jenkins had arranged for the Isham Jones band.

Gordon Jenkins was involved in “Blue Prelude.”

Please listen to the famous song “Blue Prelude”.

Photo from The Big Band by George T.Simon

Gordon Jenkins was hired by the Isham Jones Orchestra in 1932 as staff arranger.

In those days Saxophonist Joe Bishop had written a composition entitled “Blue Prelude”.

Also Joe Bishop and Woody Herman composed “Woodchopper’s Ball” .

The Casa Loma Orchestra first recorded “Blue Prelude” in early 1933.

Isham Jones was not happy that another band had found success with a tune written by one of his sidemen.

So Isham Jones quickly decided to record his own version and instructed Gordon Jenkins to supplement “Blue Prelude”.

Then “Blue Prelude” has become a standard piece of popular music.

先月Gordon Jenkinsが Isham Jones Bandで編曲者としての才能を開花したと投稿しました。

その当時Gordon Jenkinsは「Blue Prelude」という名曲に携わってました。

今日は名曲「Blue Prelude」の聴き比べをお楽しみ下さい。

Gordon Jenkinsが Isham Jones に雇われた1932年頃、バンドメンバーであった Joe Bishopが「Blue Prelude」を作曲しました。

補足ですが Joe BishopはWoody Herman と共に「Woodchopper’s Ball」を作曲しています。

1933年1月The Casa Loma Orchestraが録音した「Blue Prelude」が最初にヒットしました。

当然ながらIsham JonesはライバルであるThe Casa Loma Orchestraが自分のサイドマン(Joe Bishop)によって書かれた曲で成功を収めたことをよく思いませんでした。

それ故、Isham Jonesは競合作を録音するに際し、Gordon Jenkinsに「Blue Prelude」の決定版と言えるような構成(作詞を含め)をするよう指示したそうです。

その後「Blue Prelude」はポピュラー音楽界でもスタンダード曲となっています。

前半は『Woody Herman楽団』でした。

1936年にWoody Hermanがボーカルとして参加していたIsham Jones楽団を引き継ぎWoody Herman楽団が創設されました。
1945年に新編成された『ファーストハード』はRalph Burnsの編曲や有能な新人を多数起用することによって超一流のバンドになっていきました。

Isham Jones’ compositions(5) “You’re Just a Dream Come True”

October 07,2017

Photo from The Big Band by George T.Simon

In 1931 Isham Jones composed “You’re Just a Dream Come True”.

It becoming the band’s lovely theme song.

In those days Gordon Jenkins was hired as arranger.

Photo of Gordon Jenkins

Gordon had arranged for the Jones band for many years.

Jenkins was given the opportunity to develop his skills in melodic scoring.

Finally I will introduce my favorite piece by Isham Jones

In December 1927, Benny Goodman joined Jones’ band for a few months.

In those days Jones had assemble the best musicians in Chicago.

Unfortunately they made no records.

Interestingly Benny Goodman and Isham Jones had recorded the same song,“Georgia Jubilee” .

In February 2,1934 Benny Goodman recorded with Coleman Hawkins, and the producer was Milt Gabler.

In July 16 Isham Jones Orchestra recorded “Georgia Jubilee” .

Please compare two recordings.

1931年Isham Jonesは「You’re Just a Dream Come True」を作曲しました。

この素敵な曲はIsham Jones bandのテーマソングになっています。

その当時Gordon Jenkinsが編曲者として雇われました。

Gordon Jenkinsはその後数年間に亘ってIsham Jones bandの編曲を担当することになりました。

その間Gordon Jenkinsは編曲者としての才能をいかんなく発揮できる機会が与えられたと言えそうです。

「You’re Just a Dream Come True」について、Isham Jones楽団以外は確認出来ませんでした。

それ故最後に私が一番好きなIsham Jonesの演奏を紹介させて頂きます。

「Georgia Jubilee」

1927年12月Benny GoodmanはIsham Jones bandに数ヶ月だけ参加していました。

その当時のシカゴではIsham Jones bandが最高の演奏家を集めていたと伝えられています。

残念ながらBenny Goodmanが在団していた時の録音は残っていません。

Isham Jones’ compositions(4) “You’ve Got Me Crying Again”

October 06,2017

Photo above of Isham Jones by courtesy of Wikipedia

“You’ve Got Me Crying Again”   was written by Isham Jones, with lyrics by Charles Newman, and was published in 1933.

Elsie Carlisle had sang this song from early period.

She was a popular English female singer both before and during the British dance band era of the 1920s and 1930s.

Fortunately I found the video that she sang to “You’ve Got Me Crying Again”.

For more information,Go here

「You’ve Got Me Crying Again」は1933年に発表されました。(作詞 Charles Newman)

1920年代から1930年代に英国人気ダンスバンドの女性ボーカルであったElsie Carlisleは早い時期からこの曲を歌っていました。詳細については ➡️   こちらをクリック

Isham Jones’ compositions(3) “I’ll See You in My Dreams”

October 05,2017

“I’ll See You in My Dreams” was written by Isham Jones, with lyrics by Gus Kahn, and was published in 1924.

Then ”I’ll See You in My Dreams” became the title of a movie based on Gus Kahn’s life.

Also Doris Days acted as Kahn’s wife.

I heard this song for the first time in her singing.

Photo above of Gus Kahn by courtesy of IMDb

「I’ll See You in My Dreams」は Isham Jones作曲、Gus Kahn作詞で1924年に発表されました。

その後「I’ll See You in My Dreams」の作詞家Gus Kahnを描いた伝記映画のタイトルになりました。

この映画でDoris DaysはGus Kahnの妻の役を演じています。

私はこの曲をDoris Daysの歌唱で知りました。

Isham Jones’ compositions(2) “There Is No Greater Love”

October 04,2017

Isham Jones led one of the finest dance bands of all time for some seventeen years from 1919 to 1936.

“There Is No Greater Love” lyrics by Marty Symes was the last hit before the bandleader turned over to Woody Herman in 1936.

「There Is No Greater Love」(作詞 Marty Symes)は1936年に作曲されました。

この曲はWoody Hermanがバンドリーダーを引継ぐ直前のヒット作品でした。

本日紹介する中でAmy Winehouseは異色の存在だと思います。

(追記)ブログ作成時(2017/10/4)では冒頭の曲「Isham Jones and his Orchestra (with Vocal Woody Herman) 」は添付しておりませんでした。2018/10/4に追加添付致しました。
