9780812212235: I Remember: Eighty Years of Black Entertainment, Big Bands, and the Blues

I Remember is a first-hand account of the world of black American music told by a man who has been part of that world for eighty years. Clyde E. B. Bernhardt worked with a number of bands, including King Oliver, Marion Hard, Cecil Scott, the Bascomb Brothers, and Joe Garland. He started his own band, the Blue Blazers, in 1946 and formed the Harlem Blues and Jazz Band in 1972.

The book is a primary document that provides information about a part of the history of American music for which there is little documentation.

About the Author:

Clyde E. B. Bernhardt is a jazz trombonist and blues singer. Sheldon Harris is a freelance jazz journalist and author.

From Library Journal:

Bernhardt's career has spanned almost the entire life of jazz. He began playing trombone in the 1920s, and played and sang during the 1930s and 1940s with King Oliver, Edgar Hayes, Jay McShann, and dozens of other groups. After semi-retirement in the 1960s, Bernhardt is again touring Europe and the United States. His is the story of many black musicians who spent hundreds of hours in buses to play dances throughout the country, and perfomed in Harlem clubs where they were barred from the audience. Count Basie's Good Morning Blues ( LJ 1/86) tells a similar story. Harris, author of Blues Who's Who , preserves Bernhardt's congeniality, humor, and colloquial speech in a portrait of a personality and an era. William Brockman, Drew Univ. Lib., Madison, N.J.
