Discover the LEGENDARY TASTE of our

Danny Raskin's

The Best of Everything
... and "Johnny Guarnieri

PIANIST JOHNNY
Guarnieri, a standout with
the 1940s big bands of Artie
Shaw and Benny Goodman,
brings his lightning fingers
and innovative riffs to
Chuck Muer's Top of the
Pontch starting this Tues-
day.
Guarnieri, who jazz
writer Leonard Feather
called "a one-man history of
jazz piano," will perform
Tuesdays through Satur-
days for two weeks at the
skyline restaurant atop the
Hotel Pontchartrain . . .
Shows begin at 8 p.m. Tues-
day through Thursday and
8:30 Friday and Saturday.
Guarnieri's specialty,
mellow songs designed for
dancing during the big band
era, are the perfect accom-
paniment for the new gen-
eration that's discovering
slow dancing . . . Joining
him will be Everett
McCrary on bass and
drummer Babe Borders.
Following his years
with the big bands,
Guarnieri worked with
smaller groups, cutting
dozens of records and re-
cording more than 100
radio programs known
as "The Manhattan
Nighthawks featuring
Johnny Guarnieri" . . .
Featured in his records
were Detroiter J.C.
Heard, Slam Stewart and
Tony Mottola ... Vocalist
June Christy sang in
some of the radio pro-
grams.
For the past several
years, Guarnieri has played
in a North Hollywood,
Calif., nightspot . . . He has
toured Europe twice .. .
once in a salute to Fats Wal-
ler . . . and plays occasion-
ally in Toronto as well as
Detroit.
One of Guarnieri's
trademarks is his inclina-
tion to slip into unusual
meters on traditional songs.
-`His obsession with the
5/4 meter is fascinating,"
Leonard Feather said .. .
"The average listener may
not understand what is
going on when he hears
`Lover' or a blues played
with that extra beat to the
bar, but he certainly will
sense that something
different and provocative is
happening."
Also notable is the lightn-
ing flight of Guarnieri's
small hands over the
keyboard.
"Watching his hands
race through 'Carolina
Shout,' you wonder
whether the camera has
yet been invented that
can take an unblurred
action shot of Guarnieri's
left hand at this tempo,"
Feather added.
Add to his style and speed
a seemingly endless reper-
toire of standards and
Guarnieri will probably be
able to spend his two weeks
at Top of the Pontch without
ever playing the same song
the same way twice.
Two new Johnny Guar-
nieri albums on the Jim
Taylor Presents label .. .
"Johnny Guarnieri, Keep
On Dreaming" solo ballads

Originals" . . . half solo and
half trio with J.C. Heard,
drums, and Major Holley,
bass . . . $7 each postpaid or
$13 postpaid for both . . .
(Jim heads the Detroit Hot
Jazz Society . . . 12311
Gratiot Ave., Detroit 48205,
521-3555).
HERE'S JOHNNY
GUARNIERI . . . born in
New York City, March 23,
1917 . . . Played piano from
1927 studying classical
music at first . . . Started in
the dance band business in
1937 with the George Hall
Orchestra of Taft Hotel
fame .. .
Greatly admired for his
work with Benny Goodman,
1939-1940 and Artie Shaw,
1940 to 1941 . . . Was first
jazz man to play jazz solo on
harpsichord with the Artie
Shaw Gramercy Five . .
Later worked with Jimmy
Dorsey, Raymond'Scott and
Cozy Cole and during the
1940s was the most re-
corded pianist in the world
making hundreds of sides
with nearly every imagina-
ble group .. .
Recorded over 100 radio
shows as Johnny Guarnieri
and the Manhattan Night-
hawks . . . For the past sev-
eral years has been playing
at the Tail 0' The Cock in
North Hollywood .. .
Was seen there by
clarinetist Henry Cuesta,
now the 'hot' man in the
reed section of the Lawr-
ence Welk Orchestra .. .
Henry toured for several
years with Jack Teagar-
den and immediately was
