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。

下記文章は「Songwriters Hall of Fame」から引用しました。 HPは こちら

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.

Teddy Weatherford was born Pocahontas,on 11 October, 1903.

From 1915 through 1920 he lived in New Orleans, Louisiana, where he learned to play jazz piano.

After moving to Chicago, he worked with several top jazz orchestras including those led by Jimmie Wade and Erskine Tate(playing and recording with Louis Armstrong).

In 1926 he toured Shanghai as the pianist in Jack Carter’s Orchestra.

Jack Carter’s Orchestra played in Shanghai between 1926 and 1928, featuring among others Valaida Snow.

Despite Jack Carter and his orchestra left to USA,Teddy Weaterford stayed on Shanghai.

Then he was invited to Paris by Hugues Panassie and played in the Paris World Exposition.

He recorded solo piano performance in the Swing label.

After he returned to Shanghai, he made a voyage to Culcutta for World War II.

Unfortunately Teddy Weatherford died of cholera in Calcutta, aged 41.

Please refer to the video about his activity in Calcutta.

Teddy Weatherfordは1903年10月11日バージニア州Pocahontasで生まれました。


シカゴに移動しJimmie Wade楽団やErskine Tate楽団というトップクラスの楽団で演奏しています。

Louis Armstrongが在籍していたErskine Tate’s Vendome Orchestraでの録音は有名です。

1926年、Jack Carter’s Orchestraの一員(ピアニスト)として上海に渡ることになります。

上海でのJack Carter楽団の演奏にはValaida Snowが参加しています。(Valaida Snowの演奏を1曲添付しました)

Jack Carter楽団は米国に帰りましたが、Teddy Weatherfordは単独で上海に滞在することになりました。

At the beginning of the movie, Ricky Riccardi appeared and pointed to a page with Louis’ the first biography of Louis Armstrong.

Ricky Riccardi is the Archivist for the Louis Armstrong House Museum and author of “What a Wonderful World”.

Ricky Riccardi’s Facebook Go here

There is written that Louis heard frequently the performance of Nick LaRocca in New Orleans.

Ricky said on film:”Louis often spoke about the Original Dixieland Jazz Band recordings.”

Louis Armstrong House Museum by NYCgo.com

映画の冒頭でRicky Riccardi(リッキー・リカルディ)が登場し、ルイ・アームストロングが最初に書いた自叙伝のあるページを指さししました。

Ricky RiccardiはLouis Armstrong House Museum(NYC)の管理責任者であり “What a Wonderful World”の著者でもあります。

Ricky RiccardiのFacebookはとても参考になります。こちらをクリックして下さい。


リッキーは「ルイはThe Original Dixieland Jazz Bandのレコードについてよく話していました」と映画の中で解説しています。

「僕がウェイフ少年院でトランペットを習う4年前、1909年に最初の偉大なジャズオーケストラがドミニク・ジェームズ・ラロッカというコルネット奏者によってニューオリンズで結成された。みんな「ニック」ラロッカと呼んでいた。彼の楽団はたったの5人組だった。でも彼らはそれまでで最高にホットな5人組だった。(中略) 彼らが作り、当時世界中に新しいジャズ音楽をとどけた偉大なレコードの一部には『タイガーラグ』『リヴァリー・ステイブル・ブルース』 なんかがある。 ラロッカは数年前に引退してニューオーリンズに戻ったが、シンコペートされた音楽の偉大な開拓者としての彼の名声は永く永く、たぶんアメリカ音楽が続く限り残るだろう。 ディキシーランドバンドはすべてを変えた。」
