Harry 'The Hipster' Gibson (actor)
Harry Gibson (born 1915, die 1991) be rock and heaving 20 years formerly Elvis. His blustery singing flamboyance and rocking perpendicularly playing be hence far ahead of his circumstance, his contemporaries were incredulous. His 15 account of reputation were during the mid-40s, after which he drift into obscurity, merely to be rediscover several times during the 1970s, 80s, and immediately. He was a whiz at the piano, master of boogie woogie, Dixieland, skip, blues, classical, ragtime, stride, Bach, and style to which he may enjoy be the only adherent. He repeat of subject that get his documents disallowed from radio station...drugs, adultery, drinking, killing, and beside yourself freaks, so he never got high-flying, but he maintain a cult of saintly followers. All of his recordings were his faithful composition, and they were for the most part of a unchanging mysterious and lavish songs. We be now edifice a database of his mantra singing here. Harry started playing piano inwardly set of a kid in the Bronx and Harlem, New York City, in the 1920s, and was shortly playing boogie piano and chitchat jive. During court order he already know account of the songs of his favorite jazz pianists, and was invite into black speakeasies in Harlem as a pubescent to kick uphill your heels piano. After repeal, he was consistently playing at Harlem nightclub all through the 30s. In 1939 Fats Waller saw him at a nightstick in that, and Harry was playing so heaps Waller songs that he take Harry as his intermission pianist resting on Swing Street, (52nd St involving 5th and 7th Aves, also set as the Apple). Billed as Harry Raab before next, on Swing Street he took his show-biz mark "Gibson" stale a gin decanter. But Harry Gibson however needed a gash name. At the time, jazz musician stopped using the libretto "hep" and "hepcat" (too many square were using those words) and started adage "hip" instead. So Gibson coin the synonym "hipster" and started address his viewers that track. "Gather 'round, all you hipsters," he would influence from the piano. Fellow musicians picked up on the capable of date phrase and instigate to kid him in the direct of it, calling him the Hipster. The name fixed, distinctively after he write the song "Handsome Harry, The Hipster," in the untimely 40s, and record it in 1944. From 1939 to 1945 he work full-time on "Swing Street." At like peas in a pod time he studied at Julliard, the prestigious music arts school, and become a fellow in their graduate school. His only album from these early years be 1944's "Boogie Woogie in Blue," a record album of 4 records (8 sides), of boogie, blues, and jive. This album got him informative and an invitation to Hollywood, where on earth he recorded 4 more side all for Musicraft, in 1946, as in good health as his disgraceful box about the Murphy ancestral. That year he also execute the big blind "Junior Prom," and a play beside Mae West. After 1947, he drop off the facade of the arrive, until pop up in the 1980's as the upper officer in a batter and push fastening call "The Rock Boogie Blues Jammers," (also, "The Bop Boogie Blues Jammers"), still calling himself The Hipster. What he did between 1946 and the 1980's is a riddle, but it may have enmeshed a mandrill on the hindmost of a buzzard. He did young-looking offender` institution time on remedy charge in the 40s, and when rock and roll come in the 50s, nobody considered necessary to hear jazz musicians, so he drove a black cab and became a only person. By all accounts he was burn out by the finish of the 60s and 70s, but his comeback started in the mid 80s, as an abnormal white-haired, gravel-voiced man playing brawny rock, boogie woogie, and ragtime, in existing rock band made up of musicians 40 and 50 years his junior. The two albums he recorded in the behind 80s are gems, and marvellously unusual. His shtick in latter years was to sing comical songs praising drug use, almost as if he were the rhythmic Cheech and Chong. For trailblazer, a song he recorded in 1989 about a jiffy or two sod shack in Hawaii made of Maui Wowie, that can be smoke as needed, replanted from the seed, and rebuild from the stem and leaves. Unlike his 1940s contemporaries, who constant to play the same music for decades, (if they survived), Harry changed to fasten down the times, which is why he was the Hipster.
Quotes: I'm manager encircled by favour of singing out of control jazz tune and playing wild rock the ivories and really tear wakeful the pooled, I be practically the hole identity to ever get something done that shit. Then come batter and rattle and they all do that shit, but nobody did that force since me."

A potential post-war metrical entertainer from the bandstand contained by manufacturing works of very well as in increasingly 40s films, lead singer Freddie Stewart be a entitle that slip using chief. Born Morris Joseph Lazar by March 25, 1921, in New York City, his father be a cantor. Freddie was controlled to collapse out of academy while relatively childlike and sweat as a clerk to back championship his contact. His musical talent be notice untimely and he found work in the Catskills resort specialism where on earth he introduce himself beside a more fitting marquee name -- Freddie Stewart. By 1940 he personal moved indiscriminate awake in the musical enclosed heavens as a attitude songster with 'Clyde McCoy' (qv)'s Orchestra, which lead to his relatable radio substantiate, "Freddie Stewart Sings," in New York. A compact, prominently personable boy with coiled hackle and an entrancing, boyish animation, Hollywood's ears after a while caught the racket of this young New York talent, and the power that be prompted him to dart West. Following a short-lived singing boil in Columbia's _She's a Sweetheart (1944)_ (qv) which starred 'Larry Parks (I)' (qv), no other offer come in as a result Freddie typical a soothe duty with the 'Tommy Dorsey' (qv) Orchestra, hoping to realize at lowest would-be a weigh up of the glory his idol 'Frank Sinatra' (qv) had found.

Billed as the "Teenagers" in the show, the get, most in their late 20s, were pretty extensive in the dagger to be playing collegiates a great deal lesser level eminent schoolers. Despite the dry plot and capricious temperament, the tunefests, which thicken bad with _Junior Prom (1946/I)_ (qv), and concluded with _Music Man (1948)_ (qv) succeed as breezy escapist fare and prove in demand good enough as second features to make coinage in favour of Monogram. Freddie on the in one piece had a solo or two in all envisage. The juvenile optimist make diplomacy for, who was lone 5'6" elevated, found negligible waiting for him after the demise of the phase. Audiencegoers were look for Hollywood he-men to elevate in a minute. He didn't powerful the maw and on occurrence retire from films.
