Here’s a touching comment which I received this morning, about my post from last month about Twitter, and the picture of David Jean Baptiste.
“Can’t believe how people find so many wonderful things thru Twitter. I’m an eighty-four year old jazz fan who hung out with the Condon, Muggsy Spanier, Pee Wee Russell bunch a long time ago. Nice blog. Photo made me think of dear little Ernie Caceres.”
I’ll return the compliment. A grainy photo of Ernie Caceres, playing in the Glenn Miller band in the film Orchestra Wives from 1942.And have a coffee, courtesy of Ernie Caceres, among others .
Enjoy your Sunday, Reader 347. You’ve perked up mine. Thank you.
A big hero of mine in the Glenn Miller orchestra was the wonderful Ernie Caceres who´s inspired playing on his mighty baritone sax really sparked the band. He really was the Harry Carney in that outfit and it´s a pity he didn´t got he chance to play more baritone with Glenn.
