Stereo helps in comeback BY DOC QUIGG NEW YORK UPI Man that music with the beat so lovely and once considered so naughty the waltz may be blowing up a comeback When an expert thinks he senses a trend we ought to pay attention So hear Guy Lombar do Whether Stereo is a big fac tor or whether people have got so sick and tired of this bad music I dont know but we cant play enough waltzes now Recently our waltzes have got more applause than anything else It seems people are more anxious for good music Around Chicago where weve just been nine out of ten radio stations are playing beautifulmusic Our schedule for our next record album is all in the better music I think stereo has had a lot to do with it SPEAKING OF waltz music whatever happened to Wayne and The Waltz You Saved For Me Four or five years ago Lombardo said King came in and told us that although mu sic had been good to him he was through with it Most of the time he spends in car fi nancing in Phoenix And he was a beautiful cattle farm in Wis consin But three or four mpnths a year he goes back to run ning a band All right how about Kay Kyser Wheres he Kyser retired from show business just walked away from it Hes a teacher now And Artie Shaw is just plain retired I think hes a world traveler now isnt he Ted Weems is sort of semiretired takes a few weeks of work when he wants to Weems is the man who had a whistler named Elmo Tan ner and a Groaner named Perry Como Where are they Lombardo said he didnt know where Tanner was but Como seems to have found his own niche in glory THE YEAR was 1924 when Lombardo and the Royal Ca nadians came to the United States Paul Whiteman was a major force on the band scene Whiteman is the guy who reaUy started all the young bands with symphonic music Lombaro said He influenced every band in the world changed them overnight And then in those days when we came in there was Isham Jones in Chicago Lopez was in New York Ben Bernie was great and Abe Lyman and Gus Arnheim was a great Califor nia band It was with Arnheim that Crosby got his start He and Bing made Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams And then in the mid30s you take a big band like Snap Fields and his rip pling rhythm style He said people are tired of the bubbles and he gave em up He talked his boys into going into the HoustonDallas area and he does very well with onenighters JAN GARBER a top band in the 1930s hes made his home in Shreveport La for the past 10 years and his spe cialty is playing all the horse shows His band is sort of local guys in Shreveport moved down there with him Ted Fio Rito is in Las Ve gas with a small unit they call it lounge work Les Brown and Harry James are still very active in Las Vegas both Lounges and Woodie Herman is in the lounge business Glen Grays Casa Loma band was built on the
