I've tried many times through her agent, too, and was totally unsuccessful. Luckily, we were able to pull this off through a personal contact who's close friends with her and did me a favor. I hope she gets overwhelmed by how great playing for dancers is, and you guys can speak to her directly at th...

Yehoodi 8th Anniversary Party with Ernestine Anderson!!!

It’s been 8 years since Yehoodi had it’s first discussion thread and calendar listing. We’ve seen a lot of changes over the years, but one constant that has remained has been the swingin’, soulful voice of Miss Ernestine Anderson. Her classic “I Love Being Here with You,” and many, many other songs,...

Benny Powell, trombone!

Eddie Jones - bass; Wendell Culley - trumpet; Henry Coker - trombone; Jack Washington - sax

Thanks for your help, guys! I'm surprised there are so few that people can think of. It closed in 1958, so anyone in their mid-70s who's still kickin' might have been there for the tail end of things <shrug>

Got a question for everyone here. Do you know of any musicians that played at the Savoy Ballroom and are still alive? And what band did they play with? I know Earl May played at the Savoy with Lucky Millinder's Band and Cat Anderson's Band. I head that Frank Foster, Joe Wilder and Clark Terry did, t...

Howard on the other hand kicks ass...he plays often with David Ostwald's Gully Low Jazz Band here in NYC (especially at Birdland). ...
