FOR THE FIRST TIME in color by TECHNICOLOR in M-G-M's 31 s^^^s^Hi ^Psjsav'xa? Co-SUrrin| MICHAEL WILDING wit* Cic THUS MMIIIIE Imui AN M-G-M rtCTUtt GOETZ Tonight, Friday and Saturday Filmland Likes Versatile Band By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (Ift —Sauter-Finegan are the most. If this statement doesn't make sense to you, then you obviously are square. Ask any hep character and he will translate for you: The new orchestra headed by Ed Sauter and Bill Finegan is more than sensational. It's 'cool. The crazy, mixed-up kids of Los Angeles confirmed that opinion when the outfit made its first appearance here in a concert last weekend. The band has been hailed as the only great one to arise since before the war. I agree. You can't compare the band to any , single one. It can be as rhy- tHmic as Benny Goodman, as sweet as Glenn Miller, as progressive as Stan Kenton, as bubbly as Shep Fields and as wild as Duke Ellington. The band is an arranger's dream and no wonder. The leaders toiled for many years putting noted together for big-name bands, Sauter for Goodman and others and Finegan for Miller. Both are soft- spoken types who stand almost shyly in front of their musicians, giving an occasional cue. Ed and Bill were neighbors in New York and often lamented their troubles with their band bosses. They never worked together until they formed the ciuvent band. How did it happen? "A year ago, Bill was in Europe studying music and arranging for bands over there," Ed said. "1 was in New York and I found myself slipping further and further into the quicksand of commercial music. I guess my letters to Bill were pretty morose, because he suggested that we form a band and do the things we've always wanted to do. I jumped at the chance. "It was time to try something new. That meant using new sounds, and we have adopted many instruments that have been used only in symphony orchestras. In our arrangements we have tried to bring a new combination of the classical vein and jazz, which is our real folk music. "Bill and I are now doing the things we wanted but the band leaders wouldn't allow." New Glarus Plans Senior Class Play NEW GLARUS (Times Special)— April 9 has been chosen for th>? senior class play, "Pride and Prej- udict," under the direction of Miss Janice Milton.
