Elliot Lawrence

If he had been born ten years earlier, Elliot Lawrence might have been one of the more significant bandleaders of the swing era. As it worked out, he was a bit of a prodigy, leading a strong dance band when he was only 20, but by then (1945), the swing era was ending. Lawrence did record steadily as a leader during 1946-1960 (for Columbia, Decca, King, Fantasy, Vik, and Sesac), sometimes using Gerry Mulligan arrangements, but he mostly worked in the studios. After 1960, Lawrence stopped recording jazz altogether to compose, arrange, and conduct for television, films, and the theater. Few of his jazz-oriented sessions are available, but his hard-to-find music is worth exploring. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

Comments

Back in the early 1950s, I hired an assistant in my Display Department at Bond Clothes on F Street in Washington, D.C. He had just come off the road playing baritone with Elliot Lawrence's band.

Jack Nimitz, last I heard, was living in the L.A. area and was the first-call bari of choice on the West coast. That was maybe, ten years ago.
