Sonny Dunham Rated Great
Trumpet, Trombone. Artist

By JEAN GILMER

Dunham is a freak, Dunham is a'
queer . . . Dunham, to the amazement
of his fellow musicians as well as that
of the dance-band followers, plays
both trumpet and trombone with
equal' facility.
It's a thing that just isn't supposed
to be done, but Sonny Dunham, who
will bring his band to play for the
annual Soph Prom to be held fronm
10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday, Dec. 12, hi
the Union, does it
"It is rare that a trumpet playeir
doubles on the trombone, because the
two embechoures are entirely dif-
erent and apt to interfere with each
other." That's the technical explan-
ation, but when people ask Sonny, he
just says, "I know it isn't right and
I can't really explain how I developed
this ability to play both the trumpet!
and trombone without affecting the
the playing of one or the other."
From Musical Family ,
Sonny Dunham comes from a musi-
cal family, as he and his two sisters,
who grew up in Brockton, Mass., have
all gone into music is a 'profession.
Sonny's first instrument was the
trombone and while still in grammar
school, he appeared several ,imes as C
a soloist in concerts in Brockton. '
It was not until he graduated from
the ranks of an amateur musician
that Sonny took up trumpet. His first
professional engagement was with
Paul Tremain in 1930, but before long
Glen Gray discovered him so he join-
ed the Casa Loma orchestra as a
rumpet player.
Star Of Casa Loma
With Casa Loma he developed a'
yew and sensational style of trumpet
flaying which was popular in solos on
uch discs as "Memories of You" and
'Georgia On My Mind." All during
he seven years he remained as a star
withGlen Gray, he played both the
rupet and trombone, to the con-
inoal amazement of musiciarys and
iritics alike.
In 1940, Sonny decided to strike out
>n his own, so he went to Hollywood
;o gather together a band from the
:ream of young musicians, a band
that clicked almost instantaneously
an the West Coast, whereit played at
the "Casa Manana" in Culver City
and "The Grove" in the Russian
River.
Is "Promising Band"
Goihg East after having his orches-
tra acclaimed as the most ltromisipg
Nand of 1941 by a poll conducted
dhrough the "Make-Believe Ballroom"
adio program, Dunham filled an en-
agement at the Meadowbrook Club
