Our Thoughts Go Out To Tony Terran's Family
May He Rest In Peace


Tony Terran
May 30th 1926 ~ March 20th 2017
American trumpet virtuoso, Tony Terran, a former member of the now legendary Wrecking Crew has sadly died at the age of 90. He sadly leaves behind, his sister Rita Terran Harper, his children Mark Terran, Dave Terran, Eve Terran, Jennifer Terran, and his step-daughter, Aprile Boettcher.

American trumpet player, Anthony "Tony" Terran
was born Buffalo, New York, and started out working for radio shows as a high school student and toured with Horace Heidt, before moving to Los Angeles in 1944, to further his musical career. In 1945 he began working with Bob Hope, and then with Desi Arnaz in 1946. His relationship with Arnaz involved him with the beginnings of Cuban/Latin music in the United States. He also becoming part of The Wrecking Crew, now a legendary group of session musicians in Los Anglese, CA, who earned wide acclaim in the 1960s. Though they had no official moniker during their active years, the nickname "the Wrecking Crew" was later popularized by drummer and member Hal Blaine in his 1990 memoir, in which he attributed the origin of the term to disparaging comments made about them in the early 1960s by older musicians who were critical of their embrace of rock & roll. At the time they became the de facto house band for Phil Spector, playing on many of the hits that he produced at the time, and contributing to the development of his Wall of Sound production methods. Regarded as one of the most versatile trumpet players in the music business, Tony influenced the LA music scene for more than four decades as a specialist of so many musical styles. He performed and recorded with many artists including Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Bonnie Raitt, Dean Martin, Ray Charles, Jan & Dean, Sonny & Cher, Barry McGuire, the Mamas & the Papas, The Baja Marimba Band, Desi Arnaz, Ella Fitzgerald, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Tijuana Brass, The Bee Gees, Nat King Cole, Madonna, Eartha Kitt, Perry Como, Benny Goodman, Michael Jackson, Peggy Lee, Bob Hope, Chicago, Frank Sinatra, Linda Ronstadt, Diana Ross, Tom Waits, Barbra Streisand and so many others.
Tony also played on many recordings for television shows and film soundtracks such as I Love Lucy, The Lucy Show, Here's Lucy, The Brady Bunch, I Dream of Jeannie, Get Smart, Happy Days, Popeye, The Carol Burnett Show, Star Trek, Mission Impossible, Cheers, L.A. Law, The Simpsons, Rocky I, II and III, The Karate Kid I, II and III, The Natural, All the President's Men, Broadcast News, Field of Dreams, Blazing Saddles, Grease, An Officer and a Gentleman, Ghostbusters, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and The Deep. He was also a featured soloist for composers and conductors including Nelson Riddle, John Williams, Patrick Williams, David Shire, Lalo Schifrin, Elmer Bernstein, Jerry Goldsmith, Henry Mancini, Johnny Mandel, James Horner, Johnny Mandel, Charles Fox and John Barry. Tony received the Most Valuable Player award from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences in 1974 and Inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame in November 2007 with the Wrecking Crew. Tony is also featured in the American documentary film directed by Denny Tedesco, "The Wrecking Crew", which covers the story of the LA session musicians and the film premiered at the 2008 South by Southwest Film Festival.

Our Thoughts Go Out To Chuck Berry's Family
May He Rest In Peace


Chuck Berry
October 18th 1926 ~ March 18th 2017

Legendary musician and influencial music pioneer
, the great Chuck Berry, often called "the Father of Rock 'n' Roll" died at his home outside St. Louis, at the age of 90. Sadly he leaves behind his wife, Themetta "Toddy" Suggs, whom he married in 1948, and four children, Ingrid, Chuck junior, Aloha and Melody.

American singer, songwriter, guitarist and pioneer Chuck Berry was born Charles Edward Anderson Berry in St. Louis, Missouri. He had an interest in music from an early age and his first guitar was a second-hand Spanish acoustic, but by 1952, influenced by the 1940s guitarist Charlie Christian, he had gone electric. As a teenager he began playing concerts in his local high school but his education was curtailed after he was convicted of robbery and spent 3 years in a reformatory for young offenders. On his release he made a living hairdressing and working at an automobile assembly plant, but playing in a trio in the evenings with Ebby Harding on drums and Johnnie Johnson on piano. He was influenced by blues heroes such as Muddy Waters and T-Bone Walker, as well as white country and western music, though his singing style owed much to the clarity of Nat King Cole. His break came when he traveled to Chicago in May 1955 and met Leonard Chess, of Chess Records, where he recorded "Maybellene" which sold over a million copies. He penned his own material, creating a songbook through the mid-1950s which included hits such as "Roll Over Beethoven", "Too Much Monkey Business", "Brown Eyed Handsome Man", "Rock and Roll Music", "Little Queenie", "School Day (Ring! Ring! Goes the Bell)", "Sweet Little Sixteen", "Johnny B. Goode", "Back in the U.S.A.", "Memphis, Tennessee" and others. He also appeared in several rock films including Rock, Rock, Rock and Mr Rock and Roll, both from 1957; Go Johnny Go from 1959; and Jazz on a Summer's Day in 1960. By the end of the 50s Chuck was an established star and a nightclub owner. But in 1960, married with four children, he was found guilty of taking a 14-year-old girl across a state line, to work in his club as a cloakroom girl. He protested that she only went to the police after he fired her from his nightclub, and that he had thought she was 20. He was eventally jailed for 18 months until late 1963. When Chuck was released his return to recording and performing was made easier because British invasion bands—notably the Beatles and the Rolling Stones—had sustained interest in his music by releasing cover versions of his songs, and other bands had reworked some of them, such as the Beach Boys' 1963 hit "Surfin' U.S.A.", which used the melody of Chuck's "Sweet Little Sixteen". In 1964 and 1965 he released eight singles, including three that were commercially successful, "No Particular Place to Go", "You Never Can Tell", and "Nadine". In May 1964, he had made a successful tour of the UK, and also played at large events in North America, such as the Schaefer Music Festival, in New York City's Central Park in July 1969, and the Toronto Rock and Roll Revival festival in October. The early 70's saw him release "My Ding-a-Ling", a live version of "Reelin' and Rockin'" and the album 'The London Chuck Berry Sessions'. In March 1972 he was filmed, at the BBC Televsion Theatre in Shepherds Bush, for 'Chuck Berry in Concert' part of a 60-date tour backed by the band Rocking Horse. Among the many bands performing a backup role with Chuck in the 1970s were Bruce Springsteen and Steve Miller. Through the later 70's, 80's and 90's he continued to play 70 to 100 one-nighters per year traveling solo and requiring a local band to back him at each stop. In 1986, Taylor Hackford made a documentary film, "Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll", of a celebration concert for his sixtieth birthday, organized by Keith Richards. Eric Clapton, Etta James, Julian Lennon, Robert Cray and Linda Ronstadt, among others, appeared with him on stage and in the film. In 2008, he toured Europe, with stops in Sweden, Norway, Finland, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Ireland, Switzerland, Poland and Spain. During a concert on New Year's Day 2011 in Chicago, Chuck, suffering from exhaustion, passed out and had to be helped off stage. He performed once a month at a restaurant in St Louis, Blueberry Hill, until 2014, the year in which he was awarded the Polar music prize, and intermittently thereafter. Among other honours, he received a Grammy lifetime achievement award in 1984, and a Kennedy Center Honor in 2000. On his 90th birthday Chuck announced that his first new studio album since 'Rock It' in 1979, entitled 'Chuck', would be released in 2017, and it features his children, Charles and Ingrid, on guitar and harmonica, and he dedicated to his wife of 68 years, Themetta Berry.

Our Thoughts Go Out To James Cotton's Family
May He Rest In Peace


James Cotton
July 1st 1935 ~ March 16th 2017

World renowned and legendary master of the blues harmonica, James "Mr. Superharp" Cotton has died at a medical center in Austin, Texas from pneumonia, at the age of 81. Sadly he leaves behind his wife Jacklyn, daughters Teresa and Marshall Ann, son James, and grandchildren and great-grandchildren.


American blues harmonica player, singer and songwriter, James Henry Cotton, dubbed
"Mr. Superharp", was born in Tunica, Mississippi, but by the time he was nine both of his parents had passed away and he left home with his uncle and moved to West Helena, Arkansas, where Sonny Boy Williamson II mentored him in his early career. At the age of 15 he cut four songs for the fledging label Sun Records: “Straighten Up Baby,” “Hold Me In Your Arms,” “Oh, Baby,” and “Cotton Crop Blues” for the and at aged 17 KWEM, a radio station in West Memphis, Arkansas, as well as performing with the Howlin' Wolf's band in the early 1950s. In 1955 he was invited to join the Muddy Waters Band and stayed with the group for eleven years, until 1966. Jame's first recording session with Waters took place in June 1957 and he alternated with Little Walter on Waters's recording sessions until the end of the decade. In 1965 James formed the Jimmy Cotton Blues Quartet, with Otis Spann on piano, to perform with in-between the Waters's band gigs. In 1966, he toured and recorded with Janis Joplin while pursuing his solo career, before he formed the James Cotton Blues Band in 1967. In the 1970s, he recorded several albums and reunited with Waters when he played harmonica on Muddy's Grammy Award–winning 1977 album 'Hard Again', which was produced by Johnny Winter. He won a host of prizes throughout his career, including six Living Blues Awards and 10 Blues Music. The James Cotton Blues Band received a Grammy nomination in 1984 for 'Live from Chicago: Mr. Superharp Himself!'; a second for his 1987 album 'Take Me Back' and was awarded a Grammy for Best Traditional Blues Album for 'Deep in the Blues' in 1996. Over his long career James performed and recorded with dozens of greats including Freddie King, B.B. King, Santana, Elvin Bishop, Grateful Dead, Taj Mahal, Gregg Allman, Sonny Boy Williamson, Johnny Winter, Alexis Korner, Jimmie Vaughan, Big Mama Thornton, Steve Miller, Mike Bloomfield, Charlie Musselwhite, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Keith Richards and William "Billy Boy" Arnold to mention a few and in 2006, he was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame. In August 2010, James was the special guest on Larry Monroe's farewell broadcast of Blue Monday, which he hosted on KUT in Austin, for nearly 30 years. James's studio album 'Giant', released in late September 2010, was nominated for a Grammy Award and his album 'Cotton Mouth Man', released in May 2013, was also a Grammy nominee. He played harmonica on "Matches Don't Burn Memories" on the debut album by the Dr. Izzy Band, Blind & Blues Bound, released in June 2013 and in 2014, he won a Blues Music Award for Traditional Male Blues Artist and was also nominated in the category Best Instrumentalist, Harmonica.
