MONDAY, SEPT. 21, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THKEB By RICHARD KLEINER NBA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK — (NBA) — Pro lem: How to re-cveate the exa tone of a band that hasn't playe for ten years. That's the job that faced Josep Gershenson, music head at Unive sal-International Studios. The ban in question was Glenn Miller's, an the cause of-the whole thing was movie, "The Glenn Miller Story.' Gershenson says that the tone o the bands -?• such as Tex Beneke — which took over a,fter Miller death weren't exactly like the rea thing. "Something was lacking," says. "Finally, I took home a bate of original Miller records a played them continuously over -DICK'S PICKS— (Vlckl Benet, MGM); "I Wanna Be Evil" (Eartha Kltt,.RCA); "Woman Is Strange" (Twigg Wilson, MGM); "Three O'clock an the Morning" (Monty Kelly, Essex); "Lonely" (Kitty Kallen, Decca); "Happy Happy Heart (Cindy Lord, MGM); "Pussy Pootin' " (Florian ZaBach, Decca); "Why Do You Pretend? (Alan Dean, MGM). POP ALBUM: "Beautiful Music to Love By" is the title of David Rose's new MGM album. Can't guarantee the love, bu<, <t is beautiful music — with vocals and harmonica solos scattered among the lush arrangements of dreamy tunes. CLASSICAL: "It's opera week on RCA-Victor. Two full-length opera albums have been released. One pairs "I Pagliacci" u fi d "Cavalleria Rusticana." with Jussi Bjoerling, Robert Merrill, Zinka Milanov and Victoria de los Angeles featured. The other is "Otelto," with Tos- saninl conducting, and Ramon Viriay, Giuseppe Valdengo and Herva Nelli singing the leads. weekend. I almost'drove my wife crazy, but I discovered that Glenn had a delicate balance between his reed and brass sections that nobody else had duplicated." Gershenson, himself an old-time orchestra leader, says the tone 'in the movie will be just right. The movie band, including some ex- Miller men and others like Louis Armstrong and Gene Krupa, will play 28 Miller classics — "Moon- f light Serenade," "Tuxedo Junction," "In the Mood," "String of Pearls" and all the other freat ones. James Stewart will play Miller, but somebody else will play the trombone. * « * For a joyous evening, play "Twisted Titles," a game I Invented one evening while listening to i Jimmy Boyd. It's simple. Just figure out what song titles should be paired on a record for the fun of reading both names. Example: "I'd Rather Die Young"—"Before It's Too Late. Then there's "Slttih 1 in the Sun"— "I See Tlie Moon." Also " I Believe"—I'm Walking Behind You." And "Let's Walk That-a-Way."— "With These Hands." Or "You, You, You" —'"The Story of Three Loves." It's a good way to while away • a long-playing evening. THE POPULAR SIDE: With "Dragnet" setting the pace, latest trend is songs taken from TV themes. Newest is "Mr. Peepers," with a fine job done by Jack Pleis' orchestra on Decca ....
