So was the whole Norvo band.
Talent is obvious in the band. Bob
Kitsis, the pianist, played with Artie
Shaw before joining Norvo. "Eddie
Bert is a sure bet for next year's
All-Star band," said Dave Dexter,
editor of Music and Rhythm. J immy
' Gemus, on trumpet, is one of the dis
coveries of this year. Frank Veseley,
the drummer, worked up an enviable
reputation playing for the Mutual
Broadcasting System. Jock Kim is
a great reedman, being equally at
home on clarinet and tenor sax.
"Last week we played for the au
diences of the Appollo theater in
Harlem," Red smiled. "It was the
second time that a white band has
played in that house where only the
top ranking colored bands are sus
posed to play." -
Red did not say that the band had
to beg off at each performance be
cause the audience had not had
enough of his music. They appre
ciated Red's attempt to play more
than just good dance music.
Few people will remember what a
role Red had in the development of
swing. Red and his wife, Mildred
Bailey, have been awake to jazz ever
since they were aware of music it
self. Together they sponsored im
promptu jam sessions, and their
home has been a gathering place for
the ace musicians from 1934 until

piece of music dated 1866 using the

More on this later. . . . We've heard
strange reports lately of Dr. An

Some things happen around here
so slowly that even DTH reporters
don't see them. Witness the present
labor shortage. Not a restaurant or
cafeteria on campus or in town isn't
in serious straits. Fifteen Negroes
