93th Birthday Tribute to


BY Alex Wang [ August 07, 2011 at 13:00:38 ]

August "Jazz Month" Houston
A Birthday Tribute to An Original
"Texas Tenor" Arnett Cobb

Every year for the Month of August, Houston pays tribute to "Jazz" with a month long celebration........And we at the The Carol Sanders' Monday Nite Jazz Jam continue our Month long celebration this week with a Birthday Tribute to one of the original "Texas Tenors", Mr. Arnett Cobb.

On the TV Show "Sanford and Son"
Redd Foxx would always say
"Elizabeth I'm Coming to See You"
That was Arnett's Wife!!!!

August 10th, 1918 a true legend was born in the state of Texas, a man through all odds made his mark in American history as one of the greatest musicians of his time!!!!

Arnett Cobb's 93th Birthday Salute

Arnett Cobb (1918–1989) was born in Houston, Texas. His musical career began with the local bands of Chester Boone, from 1934 to 1936, and Milt Larkin, from 1936 to 1942 (which included a period on the West Coast with Floyd Ray). He replaced Illinois Jacquet in Lionel Hampton's band in 1942, staying with Hampton until 1947.

Cobb then started his own seven-piece band, but suffered a serious illness in 1950, which necessitated spinal surgery. Although he re-formed the band on his recovery, in 1956 its success was again interrupted, this time by a car crash. This had long term effects on his health, involving periods in hospital, and making him permanently reliant on crutches; nevertheless, Cobb worked as a soloist through the 1970s and 1980s in the U.S. and Europe with several recorded albums to his credit.
