DOCTOR REDMAN’S PRESCRIPTION

Good advice from the Doctor, 1931:

I think with longing of catching up on my sleep . . . but there’s so much fine music to hear!

And — just a thought: who remembers Don Redman these days?  A world-changing arranger, bandleader, saxophonist, and one of the most charming singers ever.  Don’t dare call what he does “talking” in my presence, for the lilt of  his voice and his whimsical phrasing are so delightful.

May your happiness increase!

  1. Such sound medical advice could have only emerged from this virtuoso wind player, arranger, and composer of “Chant of the Weed”.

  2. I see you have him posted under “Jazz Titans”, very fitting! I doubt anyone in the twenties had more influence on how the thirties would sound then Don Redman.
