“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.
