    Sterling Young: an old smoothie

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    California fiddler Sterling Young (and isn't that a great name for show biz?) led a band that personified the "Business Men's Bounce" - a pleasant balance of swing and sweet music that never quite went too far in either direction.

    Few Western bands got to record regularly in the 30s, but Sterling kept busy making "Royal Blue" radio trascriptions that today enjoy popularity as...cake stands? :eeek:

    Click the pic for a complete Lp reissue of Young's 1939-'40 band doing nicely by contemporary hits like Cherokee, All the Things You Are and It's A Blue World.

    You know im feeling worse and worse about the death of this gal, she could have been one of the great jazz singers. Damn her, the way she treated herself

    At the very least she could have been a voice for jazz awareness and sensibility in the pop world. You have to wonder - if she'd chosen jazz, would she be alive today, poor, unknown, pretty, and happy?

    Nick Lowe has hit another one out of the park. Elegant and poignant are what come to mind.
