Back in 1958, "Peter Gunn" was one of the unexpected hits of the new television season, capturing the imagination of millions of viewers by mixing private eye action with a jazz setting. Composer Henry Mancini was more than fluent in jazz, and his music nailed down the popularity of the series. With the main title theme, a driving, ominous, exciting piece of music to lead off the album, The Music From Peter Gunn became a huge hit, charting extraordinarily high for a television soundtrack and doing so well that RCA Victor came back the next year asking for a second helping (More Music.
The soundtrack album for Peter Gunn may be best known for the cool twang guitar riff of the main theme (later lifted wholesale by the B-52's for "Planet Claire," among others who recognized its forbidding cool), but this is his most jazz-influenced soundtrack work. There's some particularly impressive work by drummer Shelly Manne and vibes player Victor Feldman, whose cool, understated playing seems to deliberately recall that of Milt Jackson.
Samuel Aaron Bell, a bassist who performed with Duke Ellington’s orchestra, died on July 28. Cause of death was not released. He was 82. When he was a child, Bell’s mother taught him to play the piano. In high school, he learned the trumpet and the tuba, and in college, he mastered the double bass. During World War II, Bell played in Navy bands then joined the Andy Kirk Orchestra and moved to New York City. Bell joined Duke Ellington’s orchestra as a bassist in 1960, and occasionally served as Ellington’s arranger. Bell spent his later years performing in bars and clubs, and teaching music at Essex County College in Newark, . At his funeral, several of his students played Take the A Train, the famous Ellington song that featured Bell on bass.
