Someone to please the males, singer Sarah Vaughn, and someone to please the females, comedian Henry Youngman, and someone to please everyone, the Kai Winding Septet and the Glenn Miller Orchestra.
The Miller Orchectra. under the direction
of Ray McKinley, will play for the annual Homecoming dance in the Carbondale Armory on Nov.
1, at 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Featuring the Lenny Hambro Quintet, the orchestra will play in the Glenn Miller tradition with the authentic Miller arrangements.
The reorganization of the legendary Glenn Miller Orchestra brought about the team of McKinley, who
over the band when Miller was lost in action during World War II, and the versatile instrumentalist Hambro.
Shapely Lorry Peters will lend her talents to the program as vocalist for the orchestra. The brown-eyed brown-haired lass is noted for her rendition of rhythm tunes which are naturally her favorite type of songs.
"The divine One" known formally as Sarah Vaughn, one of the country's leading recording artists, will headline the two stage shows, at 7 p.m. and 9 p. m., in Shryock Auditorium. Miss Vaughn, who began professioral career at the age of 16, has sung with the Earl Hines' band, the John Kirby band and the famous Billy Eckstine group.
Miss Vaughn has been acclaimed for her superb talent by her successful "It's Magic.""Body and
Soul.""Everything I Have is Yours.""Don't Blame Me.""As You Desire Me.""Black Coffee."
"Summertime" and "I Cried for You."
The Sarah Vaughn talent has gained favor abroad as well as at home. Trips abroad are now a regular event for the popular singer. Jazz critics have raved on the unusual effects she achieves by spreading one syllable over several notes and suggesting passing chords with subtle variations on the melody.
A frequent performer on te Jack Parr television show. Henry Youngman. will also appear at the stage shows.
The Kni Winding Septet, featuring Four Trombones, will entertain for the two shows. Born in Aarhus,
Denmark. Kai Winding came to our shores at the age of 12. A few years someone handed Winding a trombone and the two have been inseparable since.
Winding's name took a new prominence through his featured work on Stan Kenton's ‘Artistry in Rhythm" series. He has appeared at the "Birdland" and on numerous radio and television shows.
Four Trombones and three rhythms formulated from the Winding idea of representing the Trombone
Sound" at its peak.
Last year's homecoming brought the Les Brown Band, the Billy Williams Quartet, Betty Johnson, Hal
Munro Orchestra and Jo Ann Greer to the campus.
The dance at the armory is expected to bring an even bigger crowd than last year's one-thousand couples.
