George Gee Big Band: The only Chinese-American Swing big band leader, George Gee is unique in so many ways. The snap in his fingers, the shuffle in his step and that unbridled joy he radiates and spreads like ecstatic wildfire to all his world-class musicians make immediate and permanent impressions on audiences, musicians, and dancers – even seasoned press!
Miss Patti Page : Patti’s silky-smooth voice engulfed the airwaves during the ‘50s and ‘60s, providing her with a staggering 111 hits, 15 gold records and four gold albums.
The Cab Calloway Orchestra : Chu was a master of the Tenor ballad, every bit the equal of Pres and the Hawk on ballads, Chu proved that to everybody very clearly on “Ghost of a Chance”and “Lonesome Nights”. But when it comes to up tempo playing I say he was absolutely untouchable at the time, left everybody in the dust and this inspired Bird to no end.
Matt Jordan : While in Columbus, Matt met multi-saxophonist, Roland Kirk who encouraged Matt to play two trumpets at the same time at a concert in Lexington Kentucky. Matt was the first to do that, now followed by some others.
Inger Marie : Norwegian jazz diva Inger Marie Gundersen spreads a contagious mood of unstressed wellbeing. Her style is relaxed and her vocal phrasing is rock-steady.
Cascade Blues Association : Jimmy Reed worked on the streets of Chicago, clubs, lounges and juke joints. He took any gig he could get. Vee Jay Records signed him in 1953. Over the next 12 years he recorded exclusively on Vee Jay. He became one of the most popular Blues artists in the country with such hits as “Baby What You Want Me To Do”, “Bright Lights, Big City”, “Going To New York”, “Shame, Shame, Shame” and dozens more.
