“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”.

He has approximately 30 albums under his own name.

Recently I purchased a few albums at second hand record shop in Osaka.

The tenor saxophone was an important part of the big band era, and in the early years its use was popularized by Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young.

But we must not forget the presence of Bud Freeman.

1100156

In those days he was sometimes known as ‘The Eel’.

In 1927, he moved to New York, where he worked as a session musician and band member with Red Nichols, Ben Pollack, Joe Venuti, among others.

Bud Freeman soon developed an original sound on the tenor sax, with less vibrato and filigree and more rhythmic drive.

“The Eel” was admired as his most notable solo performances on Eddie Condon’s 1933 recording.

Then ”The Eel” became Freeman’s nickname (for his long snake-like improvisations).

From 1936 to 1938 Freeman played with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra.

Also he joined a short time Benny Goodman’s band in 1938 before forming his own band.

He formed Summa Cum Laude Orchestra from 1939 to 1940 and joined the US Army during World War II.

After the war, Freeman joined the Eddie Condon’s bands in New York .

Since the 1950s,he had leading his own jazz groups or working with other respected pros such as Buck Clayton, Ruby Braff, Vic Dickenson and Jo Jones.

Then he was a member of the World’s Greatest Jazz Band between 1969 and 1970.

In 1974, he would move to England where he made numerous recordings and performances there and in Europe.

He even lived in London for a while, but eventually moved back to his native Chicago.

Bud Freeman died in March 15 1991 in Chicago at age eighty-four.

Coleman HawkinsとLester Youngの功績は不滅です。しかし、Bud Freemanの存在を忘れてはならない。
1927年、Bud Freemanはニューヨークに移り、Red Nichols, Ben Pollack, Joe Venutiと共演した。
1933年、Eddie Condonと録音した「The Eel」の演奏は賞賛され、「The Eel」は彼のニックネームになりました。
1936年から1938年までTommy Dorsey Orchestraに加入、その後Benny Goodman Orchestraにも短期間であったが参加した。
1939年から1940年まで自己のOrchestraを結成しました。戦後、Eddie Condonとの共演を中心に活動し、Buck Clayton、Ruby Braff、Vic Dickenson、Jo Jonesとも共演していました。
1969年からThe World’s Greatest Jazz Bandのメンバーとして訪欧し、1974年にイギリスに移住しました。1991年故郷のシカゴで永眠しました。

Also at 14 he led own band in New York, and he doubled on piano and xylophone.

He began to pioneer the bass saxophone and introduced to the California Ramblers in 1922.

Here is California Ramblers play “Crazy Words, Crazy Tune” (1927).

彼は4歳の時、ニューヨークのウォルドルフ・アストリア・ホテルでショパン・リサイタルを行う程の天才でした。又、14歳でニューヨークで自らバンドを結成しました。
名門バンドCalifornia Ramblersではベース・サクソフォンのパイオニアとしてジャズ史に名前を残すことになりました。Bix Beiderbeckeともレコーディングを行なっています。

Dick Haymes(2)

Photo of Forrest and Haymes at the start of Haymes’ radio show in 1944.

Dick Haymes left Harry James orchestra in April 1942 and joined Benny Goodman orchestra.

By the end of 1942, he left Goodman for Tommy Dorsey’s orchestra, again replacing Frank Sinatra.

In 1942 he teamed with singer Helen Forrest for many hit duets during World War II.

They recorded together both in the studio and for radio broadcasts.

The partnership of Hames and Forrest was one of the best in the history of popular music.

In particular ,“Long Ago (and Far Away)” is a popular song from “Cover Girl” starring Rita Hayworth and Gene Kelly.

Cover Girl marked the first film collaboration of Jerome Kern and Ira Gershwin.

The film featured his future wife Rita Hayworth.

Here is Dick Haymes and Helen Forrest sing “Long Ago (And Far Away).”

Oct. 23, I will participate in the meeting of “Osaka jazz club(大阪ジャズ同好会)” at “Jazz coffee Dear Lord(JAZZ喫茶 DEAR LORD)“.

I must introduce my favorite vocalist to members.

Recently I heard an interesting radio broadcast about Dick Haymes.Go here

So I have decided to introduce Dick Haymes.

Dick Haymes was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1918.

At the age of 19, he moved to New York City where he worked as a vocalist in a number of big bands.

Dick Haymes was a star crooner with the big bands during the swing era of the 1940s.

Unfortunately in those days there was Frank Sinatra on this era.

As a matter of course he was Sinatra’s replacement singer in the big bands of both Harry James and Tommy Dorsey.

The story digressed from the main subject.

I had been posted Sinatra’s episode once when he left Harry James Orchestra.Go here

In any case I think Dick Haymes should be evaluated more.

This is he sings “All or nothing at all”.

This is he sings “You’ll Never Know”.
