Popular Recording Artists
To Occupy Dance Spotlight

* * *

Returning to campus for the
second time this year, Tommy
Dorsey will combine his talents1
with those of Ralph Marterie to
provide the musical setting for
the '53 J-Hop.
The annual dance is scheduled
to take place from 9:30 p.m. to 2a
a.m. Friday, Feb. 6.
MARTERIE, sometimes known
as "The Caruiso of the Trumpet,"
has become one of the most pop-
ular recording names in the dance
band field, as determined by disc;
jockeys everywhere.
Dorsey, who was the first
bandleader in the country to1
use the trombone as a solo in-
strument, is a well-known musi-
cian and a great influence in
determining the song favorites
of the nation, according t re-
cent polls.
Both bands toured the country
during war years to play for the
boys in camps, and have since
made many personal appearances
and are rated as top record sellers.
. . *
FOR MANY YEARS, although
well-known as an instrumentalist
by others of his trade, Marterie
never acquired public recognition.
"The musician's musician,"
however, was helped on his way
to musical fame by none other
than a fellow-trumpeter, Harry
James.
Disc jockeys of America finally
rated the trumpet player as "one
of the mot promising and popular
bandleaders of 1951," based pri-
rily on his success with popular
* . *
BESIDES BEING an instru-
mentalist and "lead" trumpet
player for such outstanding band
leaders as Paul Whiteman, Percy
Faith, and John Scott Trotter, the
bandleader has gained fame for
his band especially through radio
shows and recordings.
An unusual recording, call-
ed "Trumpeter's Lullaby," was
made by Marterie by the pro-
cess of playing back successive
recordings of himself playing
four different parts.
This received acclaim through-
out the nation and further aided
him on his way to stardom.
* * *
THE INSTRUMENTATION of
the Marterie band is made up of
four trombones, five trumpets, five
reeds, three rhythm, and both a
male and female singer.
Appearing with Marterie, who
has also been dubbed "The Man,
Born for the Horn," will be none
other than "The Sentimental
Gentleman."

fifteenth anniversary as a top
bandleader of the nation accord-

ing to polls everywhere will make.
a return engagement at the IM
building this year.
HIS POPULARITY has been
strengthened year after year by
his many personal appearances
and recordings, of which he has
made over 300.
The most famous disc of TD
is naturally his theme, "I'm Get-
ting Sentimental Over 'You."
Dorsey, with his "Slush-Pump,"
as his horn has been dubbed by
fellow musicians, is known for
mixing the "sweet with the swing,"
to provide a special variety of
dance music for music lovers
everywhere.
MOST SUCCESSFUL in the na-
tion, as determined by record
polls, have been such recordings#
as "Once in a While," "There Are
Such Things," "Yes, Indeed," and
the ever-famous theme song.
Rated as the greatest Tommy
Dorsey record success by disc
,jockeys, was a number written
by a young girl and published by
his own music firm, "I'll Never
Smile Again."
"The Doctor of Swingology"
will appear for J-Hop with his 14
piece orchestra, containing "Stars-
to-be" in the vocal and instru-
mental field, according to Dorsey.
THE MUSICAL aggregation is
made up of 4 trumpets, 2 trom-
bones, 5 saxophones, drummer, a
bass and piano.
According to custom, the two
bandleaders and their musical
following will alternate to pro-

capacity.
Four o'clock permission will be

combo copped the honors for the
evening that won them a spot on
Godfrey's daily show the week be-
fore Christmas.

Offers Students
Co-rec Program
For a final relaxation before

the Intramural Building.
This IM open house is sponsored

petition.
The IM Pool is open to all of

One of the most popular gath-
ering places in recent weeks, for
both men and women, has been
the trampoline.

to open the building on Friday,
Jan. 16, for co-rec competition
and relaxation. Further plans will
be announced in The Daily.

resulted in the winning of a spot
on the television talent show for
the five man dixieland combo.
Chance was the prime factor
in the formation of the jazz
combo that tooted past the
audition eliminations to gain a
spot on Godfrey's show.
The combo was started by Bill
Andrews and a friend, Sam Ells-
worth, when the pair heard of a
summer job openingfor a jazz
combo at a night club in Sal-
mouth, Mass.
The TWO MEN recruited four
other jazz players. including
Shanahan, to form the six man
combo and obtained the job on
the Cape.
During their engagement in
Salmouth, Ellsworth took "lady
chance by the horns" when he
succeeded in booking five of the
group for a Godfrey talent audi-
tion with Ellsworth acting as
talent scout.
The "Intercollegiate Stompers"
proved that jazz has a popular
following as they jumped from the
first hearing to the final audition
skipping the intermediate steps
with their jive musicin the course
of one day.
* * *
THE USUAL procedure for
would-be stars aspiring a place on
Godfrey's show is a series of three
auditions with the final hearing
presented before the producers.
During the auditions in New
York Andrews said, "The only
disappointment of the whole
venture was the fact that we
didn't get a chance to see God-
frey."
The group had the opportunity
to see and talk with the radio and
TV star however, as they bid for
first place on the talent show with
their own arrangement of "Musk-
rat Ramble in B Flat."
The appreciation of the aud-
ience for jazz music won the com-
bo a three-day spot on Godfrey's
daily radio broadcast.
