Artie shaw - blues in the night


Artie fell in love with the music he heard on "race records (then only sold in "colored" neighborhoods) in 1927. Artie picked up a Louis Armstrong record from the late 1920s and zoomed to Chicago to hear the Louie live. He joined Irving Aaronson's band at 19, moving to Hollywood. The band toured in Chicago in the sweltering summer of 1930, where Artie was introduced to the music of Bartok, Stravinsky, Ravel, Debussy and other avant-garde composers.
