1954 J-Hop



Feature Music of Ray

Anthony, Buddy


Recent Disc Jockey Poll Shows
Orchestras As 'Tops in Nation

Martha Cook To Entertain at Annual Supper

Ray Anthony, Buddy Morrow
and their orchestras will provide
music for dancing at the 1954
J-Hop, to be held from 9 p.m. to
2:30 a.m. 'Friday, February 5, in
the Intramural Building.
The Anthony aggregation was
recently chosen the top band of
the year by Billboard's national
disc jockey poll, while Buddy Mor-
row's group was picked as the
most promising "newer" band.
Alpha Xi Delta 1 vs. Hobbs
and Kleinstueck 1 vs. Hinsdale
are WAA basketball games to
be played at 5:10 p.m. tomor-
row. Others scheduled are
Jordan 2 vs. Couzens 3 and
Stockwell 1 vs. Prescott at 7:15
p.m., while Zone 1 plays Couz-
ens at 8 p.m.

Billed as the "Young Man with
a Horn", Anthony formed his own
orchestra in 1946. His band is
presently composed of five trum-
pets, four trombones, five saxes,
drums, bass and a piano.
Featured vocalists with the band
are Tommy Mercer, Marcie Miller
and the Skyliners, a vocal quin-
One of the most important fac-
tors in Anthony's rise as a "name"
band has been the popularity of
his records with the nation's disc
jockeys. During his first year of
recording, platters such as "Mr.
Anthony's Boogie", "Count Every
Star", "Tenderly", "Sentimental
Me" and "Darktown Strutters
Ball", chalked up sales of more
than two-million.
Recently, his recording of
"Dragnet" has been played on the
air-waves daily.

Another record, "Rose, Rose, I
Love You", boosted Buddy Morrow
and his orchestra into popularity.-
However, before the sales of
this record made it financially pos-
sible, there was no regular "his
orchestra." Morrow, his trombone'
and his arrangers were turning1
out a Morrow brand of music on
each record with a different group
of studio musicians. By 1951, "his
orchestra" became a reality.
Morrow's ability on the trom-
bone won him a scholarship to
the Juilliard School of Music at
the age of 17. During his studies
he was offered a job with the Paul
Whiteman orchestra, He then
went on to play in many of the
nation's well-known bands.
The present Morrow orchestra
features three trumpets, four
trombones, four reeds, drums, bass
