Arthur Jackson

The World of Big Bands - The Sweet and Swinging Years
Ure Smith Sydney
1977 1st Ed isbn 0725403136  hb blue clothdj vgc 260x200mmx800gms For the first time the story of the big bands starting with Wilbur Sweatman in 1912 and progressing through Paul Whiteman, Lew Stone, Ray Noble, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller and other lesser known names. Chapters on the big bands in films and also on their soloists and singers.For those of us old enough to remember that the prime reason to go dancing was to hold someone softer and of a slightly different shape, this book will bring back memories. Not that I'm old enough to remember actually dancing to the Big Bands live; but certainly they were close memories and their music was still resonating in the ears, even while we danced to our local six, seven or ten-piece bands in our local dance-hall of a Saturday night. No D/J with a bunch of records can catch what it must have been like to stop dancing and just Satch's music just take you away; or Glen Miller's Moonlight Serenade when the evening is late. This book brings back all those memories ; all the old bands: Ellington; The Dorseys; Carroll Gibbons at the Savoy; Henry Hall; they are all here , the English, the Americans. Jazz, Swing. The musicians, the singers.. it's all here.
