Boyd Raeburn and Ginnie Powell(3)

December 22. 2017

After George Handy left for Hollywood film work,Raeburn hired Ralph Flanagan and Johnny Richards as arranger of successor.

At That time it was a rewarding band for that young talented arranger.

According to the discography by Tom Lord,I confirmed that many arranger are participating in the Boyd Raeburn band .

George Handy(ジョージ・ハンディー)がハリウッド映画の仕事のために楽団を退団したので、後任のアレンジャーとしてRalph Flanagan(ラルフ・フラナガン)とJohnny Richards(ジョニー・リチャーズ)が雇われました。

最近購入したTom Lordさんのディスコグラフィーを読むとBoyd Raeburn楽団には多くのアレンジャーが編曲を提供していることが確認できます。

その当時の若き才能ある編曲者にとってやりがいのある楽団だったと思われます。

瀬川先生も「Boyd Raeburnはスタッフアレンジャーに自由に思い通りのアレンジを行わせていました」と解説に記載されています。

今日は昨日ご紹介した2人(Eddie FinckelとGeorge Handy)以外の編曲者による8曲を添付しました。

“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”.

I Want to Live

Susan_Hayward_-_1959_Oscar-1

Susan Hayward receiving an Oscar for Best Actress in I Want to Live (1958)

I post about ‘jazz and film’, because Academy Award will announce next week.

‘I want to Live’ was a 1958 film directed by Robert Wise.

The film earned Susan Hayward a Best Actress Oscar at the 31st Academy Awards.

The film score was composed,arranged and conducted by Johnny Mandel,

the picture also featured jazz themes by Gerry Mulligan’s Combo.

I was impressed in the last scene.

Her execution was drawn as if ‘freak show’.

In addition,Johnny Mandel said JazzWax interview[October 23, 2008]:

“Susan Hayward was a huge Gerry Mulligan fan.

Robert and Susan wanted to get him in the film.

That was my first movie score.”
