Milt’s Wiki
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milt_Hinton
Milton John “Milt” Hinton (June 23, 1910 – December 19, 2000), “the dean of jazz bass players,” was an American jazz double bassist and photographer. He was nicknamed “The Judge”
Hinton was born in Vicksburg, Mississippi, where he resided until age eleven when he moved to Chicago, Illinois. He attended Wendell Phillips High School and Crane Junior College. While attending these schools, he learned first to play the violin, and later bass horn, tuba, cello and the double bass. As a young violinist out of school, he found gainful employment as a bassist. He later recounted in interviews, released in 1990 on Old Man Time, how this prompted him to switch to double bass.
In the late 1920s and early 1930s, he worked as a freelance musician in Chicago. During this time, he worked with famous jazz musicians such as Jabbo Smith, Eddie South, and Art Tatum. In 1936, he joined a band led by Cab Calloway. Members of this band included Chu Berry, Cozy Cole, Dizzy Gillespie, Illinois Jacquet, Jonah Jones, Ike Quebec, Ben Webster, and Danny Barker.
Hinton possessed a formidable technique and was equally adept at bowing, pizzicato, and “slapping,” a technique for which he became famous while playing with the big band of Cab Calloway from 1936 to 1951.[1] Unusually for a double bass player, Hinton was frequently given the spotlight by Calloway, taking virtuose bass solos in tunes like “Pluckin’ the Bass.”
Hinton played a rare Gofriller Double Bass during his latter career. The bass was in pieces in a cellar in Italy and a musical agent arranged the purchase from the family for Hinton. Hinton in his autobiography “Bass Line” described the tone as magnificent and said it was one of the reasons for his long success in the New York recording studios in the 1950s, and 1960s.
He later became a television staff musician, working regularly on shows by Jackie Gleason and later Dick Cavett.[1] His work can be heard on the Branford Marsalis album Trio Jeepy.
Hinton twice received awards from the National Endowment for the Arts for his work as a jazz educator: a music fellowship in 1977 and an NEA Jazz Master award in 1993.[2]
According to a search of The Jazz Discography, Hinton is the most-recorded jazz musician of all time, having appeared on 1,174 recording sessions.[3][4]
Also a fine photographer, Hinton documented many of the great jazz musicians via photographs he took over the course of his career.[5] Hinton was one of the best friends of jazz trumpeter Louis Armstrong.[citation needed]
Hinton died in Queens, New York City, New York at age 90.

Panama Francis Wiki
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panama_Francis
David “Panama” Francis (December 21, 1918, Miami, Florida – November 13, 2001, Orlando, Florida) was an American swing jazz drummer.
He began performing at the age of eight, and booked his first night club at the age of thirteen. His career took off after he moved to New York City in 1938. Early collaborations included Tab Smith, Billy Hick’s Sizzling Six, the Roy Eldridge Orchestra, and six years with Lucky Millinder’s Orchestra at Harlem’s Savoy Ballroom.
Panama Francis spent five years recording and touring with Cab Calloway. He also played with Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey, Ray Conniff, and Sy Oliver, becoming a highly successful studio drummer. He recorded with John Lee Hooker, Eubie Blake, Ella Fitzgerald, Illinois Jacquet, Ray Charles, Mahalia Jackson and Big Joe Turner. As rhythm and blues and rock and roll went mainstream Francis became even more sought after. He drummed on the Elvis Presley demos, and he is featured on hits by the Four Seasons (“Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Walk Like a Man”), the Platters (“Only You”, “The Great Pretender”, “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes” and “My Prayer”), Bobby Darin (“Splish Splash”), Neil Sedaka (“Calendar Girl”), and Dion (“The Wanderer”).
He drummed on “Prisoner of Love” for James Brown, “What a Difference a Day Makes” for Dinah Washington, “Drown in My Own Tears” for Ray Charles, and “Jim Dandy” for LaVern Baker. Many music reference books indicate that he also played drums on Bill Haley & His Comets’ 1954 version of “Shake, Rattle and Roll”, but producer Milt Gabler denied this; Francis is also believed to have played drums for at least one other Haley recording session in the mid-1960s. In 1979, Panama Francis reestablished the Savoy Sultans touring, recording several Grammy-nominated albums, and keeping residence at New York’s prestigious Rainbow Room through the mid-1980s. He appeared in several films with Cab Calloway: Angel Heart, Lady Sings the Blues, The Learning Tree.
Francis received a Pioneer Award from the Rhythm and Blues Foundation in 1993 and was also inducted into the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. His drum sticks are on display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Earle’s Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earle_Warren
Earle Warren (July 1, 1914 – June 4, 1994) was an alto saxophonist and occasional singer with Count Basie.
He was born in Springfield, Ohio.
Warren played 1st (Lead) Alto Saxophone in the Basie orchestra throughout its formative years and its heyday, from 1937 to the end of the 1940s. After the break-up of Basie’s 1940s band, in 1949, he worked with former Basie trumpeter, Buck Clayton.
Earle Warren also played some rock´n roll, working for Alan Freed in Alan Freed’s Christmas Jubilee, December 1959, which was the very last big Alan Freed show before the payola scandal put an end to the legendary Freed’s career. He also appeared in the 1970s jazz film of Count Basie and his band, Born to Swing.
In his later years, Warren performed often at the West End jazz club at 116th and Broadway in New York City, helming a band called The Countsmen, which also featured fellow former Basie-ite Dicky Wells on trombone and Peck Morrison on bass. He lived part of the time in Switzerland where he fathered a child in a May/September romance.

Clark Terry Wiki
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clark_Terry
Clark Terry (born December 14, 1920)[1] is an American swing and bop trumpeter, a pioneer of the flugelhorn in jazz, educator, NEA Jazz Masters inductee, and recipient of the 2010 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Only four other trumpet players in history have ever received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award: Louis Armstrong (Clark’s old mentor), Miles Davis (whom Clark mentored), Dizzy Gillespie (who often described Clark as the greatest jazz trumpet player on earth) and Benny Carter. Clark Terry is one of the most prolific jazz musicians in history, having appeared on 905 known recording sessions, which makes him the most recorded trumpet player of all time. In comparison, Louis Armstrong performed on 620 sessions, Harry “Sweets” Edison on 563, and Dizzy Gillespie on 501.
He has played with Charlie Barnet (1947), Count Basie (1948–1951),[1] Duke Ellington (1951–1959)[1] and Quincy Jones (1960), and has recorded regularly both as a leader and sideman. In all, his career in jazz spans more than seventy years.
Terry was born in St. Louis, Missouri. He attended Vashon High School and began his professional career in the early 1940s playing, in local clubs. He served as a bandsman in the United States Navy during World War II.
Terry’s years with Basie and Ellington in the late 1940s and 1950s established him as a world-class jazz artist. Blending the St. Louis tone with contemporary styles, Terry’s sound influenced a generation. During this period, he took part in many of Ellington’s suites and acquired a reputation for his wide range of styles (from swing to hard bop), technical proficiency, and good humor. Terry exerted a positive influence on musicians like Miles Davis and Quincy Jones, both of whom acknowledge Clark’s influence during the early stages of their careers. Terry had informally taught Davis while they were still in St Louis.
After leaving Ellington, Clark’s international recognition soared when he accepted an offer from the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) to become its first African-American staff musician. He appeared for ten years on The Tonight Show as a member of The Tonight Show Band, first led by Skitch Henderson and later by Doc Severinsen, where his unique “mumbling” scat singing became famous when he scored a hit with “Mumbles.” A persistent rumor is that Terry was a candidate to lead the band, but for racial skittishness on the part of NBC.
Terry continued to play with musicians such as J. J. Johnson and Oscar Peterson,[2] and led a group with Bob Brookmeyer that achieved popularity in the early 1960s. In the 1970s, Terry concentrated increasingly on the flugelhorn, which he plays with a full, ringing tone. In addition to his studio work and teaching at jazz workshops, Terry toured regularly in the 1980s with small groups (including Peterson’s) and performed as the leader of his Big B-A-D Band (formed about 1970). After financial difficulties forced him to break up the Big B-A-D Band, he performed bands such as the Unifour Jazz Ensemble. His humor and command of jazz trumpet styles are apparent in his “dialogues” with himself, on different instruments or on the same instrument, muted and unmuted. He has occasionally performed solos on a trumpet or flugelhorn mouthpiece.
From the 1970s through the 1990s, Clark performed at Carnegie Hall, Town Hall, and Lincoln Center, toured with the Newport Jazz All Stars and Jazz at the Philharmonic, and he was featured with Skitch Henderson’s New York Pops Orchestra. In 1998, Terry recorded George Gershwin’s “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off” for the Red Hot Organization’s compilation album Red Hot + Rhapsody, a tribute to George Gershwin, which raised money for various charities devoted to increasing AIDS awareness and fighting the disease. In 2001, he again recorded for the Red Hot Organization with artist Amel Larrieux for the compilation album Red Hot + Indigo, a tribute to Duke Ellington.
Prompted early in his career by Dr. Billy Taylor, Clark and Milt Hinton bought instruments for and gave instruction to young hopefuls which planted the seed that became Jazz Mobile in Harlem. This venture tugged at Clark’s greatest love: involving youth in the perpetuation of jazz. Between global performances, Clark continues to share wholeheartedly his jazz expertise and encourage students, including up-and-coming young jazz trumpeter, Josh Shpak. Since 2000, Clark has hosted Clark Terry Jazz Festivals on land and sea, held his own jazz camps, and appeared in more than fifty jazz festivals on six continents.
His career as both leader and sideman with more than three hundred recordings demonstrates that he is one of the most prolific luminaries in jazz. Clark composed more than two hundred jazz songs and performed for seven U.S. Presidents.
He also has several recordings with major groups including the London Symphony Orchestra, the Dutch Metropole Orchestra, the Duke Ellington Orchestra and the Chicago Jazz Orchestra, hundreds of high school and college ensembles, his own duos, trios, quartets, quintets, sextets, octets, and two big bands: Clark Terry’s Big Bad Band and Clark Terry’s Young Titans of Jazz, with the likes of Branford Marsalis, Conrad Herwig, Brad Leali, Stephen Guerra, Adam Schroeder, Frank Greene and Tony Lujan. The Clark Terry Archive at William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey, contains instruments, tour posters, awards, original copies of over 70 big band arrangements, recordings and other memorabilia.
Terry was a long-time resident of Bayside, Queens, and Corona, Queens, New York.[3] He and his wife, Gwen, later moved to Haworth, New Jersey.[4] They currently reside in Pine Bluff, Arkansas.[5]

Red Richards Wiki
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Richards
Charles Coleridge “Red” Richards (October 19, 1912, New York City – March 12, 1998, Scarsdale, New York) was an American jazz pianist.
Richards began playing classical piano at age ten, and concentrated on jazz from age 16 after hearing Fats Waller. His first major professional gig was with Tab Smith at New York’s Savoy Ballroom from 1945 to 1949. following this he played with Bob Wilber (1950-51) and Sidney Bechet (1951). He toured Italy and France in 1953 with Mezz Mezzrow’s band alongside Buck Clayton and Big Chief Moore, also accompanying Frank Sinatra during his time in Italy. He played with Muggsy Spanier on and off from 1953 through the end of the decade, and with Fletcher Henderson in 1957-58. In 1958 he did some time as a solo performer in Columbus, Ohio, then played with Wild Bill Davison in 1958-59 and again in 1962.
In 1960 he formed Saints & Sinners with Vic Dickenson, playing with this ensemble until 1970. He joined Jazz drummer Chuck Slate and his band in 1971 and stayed with him most of the year. He recorded an album with Chuck called “Bix ‘N All That Jazz” Following this he did work with Eddie Condon (1975-77), then played with his own trio in 1977-78. He played with Panama Francis’s group, the Savoy Sultans, worldwide from 1979 through the 1980s. He recorded with Bill Coleman in 1980. He continued to tour almost up until the time of his death.

Little Jimmy Scott Wiki
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Jimmy_Scott
Jimmy Scott (born July 17, 1925, also known as “Little” Jimmy Scott) is an American jazz vocalist famous for his unusually high contralto voice, which is due to Kallmann’s syndrome, a very rare genetic condition. The condition stunted his growth at four feet eleven inches until, at age 37, he grew another 8 inches to the height of five feet seven inches. The condition prevented him from reaching puberty, leaving him with a high, undeveloped voice, hence his nickname “Little” Jimmy Scott.
Scott was born in Cleveland, Ohio to Authur and Justine Stanard Scott, the third in a family of ten. As a child Jimmy got his first singing experience by his mother’s side at the family piano, and later, in church choir. At thirteen, he was orphaned when his mother was killed by a drunk driver.[2]
He first rose to national prominence as “Little Jimmy Scott” in the Lionel Hampton Band when he sang lead on the late 1940s hit “Everybody’s Somebody’s Fool”, recorded in December 1949, and which became a top ten R&B hit in 1950.[2] Credit on the label, however, went to “Lionel Hampton and vocalists”, so the singer’s name did not appear on any of the songs. This omission of credit was not only a slight to Scott’s talent but a big blow to his career. A similar professional insult occurred several years later when his vocal on “Embraceable You” with Charlie Parker, on the album One Night in Birdland, was credited to female vocalist Chubby Newsome.[3]
Lionel Hampton gave him the stage name of “Little Jimmy Scott” because he looked so young, and was short and of slight build. However, it was his extraordinary phrasing and romantic feeling that made him a favorite singer of fellow artists such as Billie Holiday, Ray Charles, Frankie Valli, Dinah Washington, and Nancy Wilson.[4]
In 1963, it looked as though Scott’s luck had changed for the good. He was signed to Ray Charles’ Tangerine Records label, under the supervision of Charles himself, creating what is considered by many to be one of the great jazz vocal albums of all time, Falling in Love is Wonderful.[5]
Owing to obligations on a contract that Scott had signed earlier with Herman Lubinsky, the record was yanked from the shelves in a matter of days, while Jimmy was honeymooning. Forty years later this cult album became available to the public again. Scott disputes the “lifetime” contract; Lubinsky loaned Jimmy out to Syd Nathan at King Records for 45 recordings in 1957–58. Another album, The Source (1969), was not released until 2001.[6]
Scott’s career faded by the late 1960s and he returned to his native Cleveland to work as a hospital orderly, shipping clerk and as an elevator operator in a hotel.
[edit]Comeback and later work

Scott eventually resurfaced in 1991 when he sang at the funeral of his long-time friend Doc Pomus, an event that single-handedly sparked his career renaissance.[7] Afterwards Lou Reed recruited him to sing back-up on the track “Power and Glory” from his 1992 album Magic and Loss, which was inspired, to an extent, by Pomus’s death. Scott was seen on the series finale of David Lynch’s television series Twin Peaks, singing “Sycamore Trees”, a song with lyrics by Lynch and music by Angelo Badalamenti. Scott was featured on the soundtrack of the follow-up film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me.[8]
Also in attendance at Pomus’s funeral was Seymour Stein, founder and operator of Sire Records, who released Scott’s 1992 album All The Way, produced by Tommy Lipuma and featuring artists such as Kenny Barron, Ron Carter, and David “Fathead” Newman. Scott was nominated for a Grammy Award for this album.[9]
He followed this up with the album Dream in 1994, the jazz-gospel album Heaven in 1996 and an album of pop and rock interpretations entitled “Holding Back the Years” in 1998, notable for its version of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U”.
In 1999, Scott’s early recordings on the Decca label were re-released on CD, as were all of his recordings with the Savoy Label between 1952 and 1975 in a three-disc box set. In 2000, Scott signed to the Milestone jazz label, and recorded four critically acclaimed albums, each produced by Todd Barkan, and featuring a variety of jazz artists, including Wynton Marsalis, Renee Rosnes, Bob Kindred, Eric Alexander, Lew Soloff, George Mraz, Lewis Nash, as well as Jimmy’s own touring and recording band “The Jazz Expressions”. He also released two live albums, both recorded in Japan, featuring the Jazz Expressions.
For some years a new album entitled I Remember You has been mentioned via various official channels, including Jimmy’s official website; however, any solid news on the album’s release date is yet to be revealed.
[edit]Legacy

Scott’s career has spanned sixty-five years. He has performed with Charlie Parker, Sarah Vaughan, Lester Young, Lionel Hampton, Charles Mingus, Fats Navarro, Quincy Jones, Bud Powell, Ray Charles, Wynton Marsalis, and Peter Cincotti. He has also performed with a host of musicians from other genres of music, such as David Byrne, Lou Reed, Flea, Michael Stipe, and Antony & The Johnsons. Scott performed at President Dwight Eisenhower’s (1953) and President Bill Clinton’s (1993) inaugurations, where he sang the same song, “Why Was I Born?”. Most recently Scott has appeared in live performances with Pink Martini, and continues to perform internationally at music festivals and at his own concerts.
In 2007, Scott received the 2007 NEA Jazz Master Award. Scott also received the Kennedy Center’s “Jazz In Our Time” Living Legend Award, and N.A.B.O.B.’s Pioneer Award in 2007. In September 2008 he did a “two-day video interview” at his Vegas home with the “Smithsonian Institute for the National Archives”. Scott and his wife Jeanie have been living in Las Vegas, Nevada since 2007, after living in Euclid, Ohio, for 10 years.[citation needed]
Little Jimmy Scott’s “If I Ever Lost You” can be heard in the opening credits of the HBO movie Lackawanna Blues. He was also mentioned on The Cosby Show, when Clair and Cliff Huxtable bet on the year in which “An Evening In Paradise” was recorded

I’m back in business with my Nakamichi 550 Dual Tracer field recorder, all I need is 2 more microphone cables and I’m ready to record my next project.

I bought this machine brand new from Harvey Electronics on 45th Street in NYC in 1976, it costed $550 back then, they didn’t call it the Nakamichi 550 for nothin’ – one of the best field recorders ever built!
http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-380910
“Nothing like the fat sound of the 550 with it’s unique “Blend Channel” 3rd mic gives it a dimensional sound that is still unsurpassed in digital portable recording machines. Jon also uses the Nakamichi in the field to record segments of his daily radio broadcast HammondCast..”

Jon Hammond’s BOD – Birds of The Day: Pelicans
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pelican
Looking for fish in the Pacific Ocean just outside the Golden Gate – JH
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Aves
Order: Pelecaniformes
Family: Pelecanidae
Rafinesque, 1815

Pelicans are a genus of large water birds comprising the family Pelecanidae. They are characterised by a long beak and large throat pouch used in catching prey and draining water from the scooped up contents before swallowing. They have predominantly pale plumage, the exceptions being the Brown and Peruvian Pelicans. The bills, pouches and bare facial skin of all species become brightly coloured before the breeding season. The eight living pelican species have a patchy global distribution, ranging latitudinally from the tropics to the temperate zone, though they are absent from interior South America as well as from polar regions and the open ocean. Fossil evidence of pelicans dates back at least 30 million years, to the remains of a beak very similar to that of modern species recovered from Oligocene strata in France.
Long thought to be related to frigatebirds, cormorants, tropicbirds, gannets and boobies, pelicans are now known instead to be most closely related to the Shoebill and Hamerkop, and are placed in the order Pelecaniformes. Ibises, spoonbills and herons are more distant relatives, and have been classified in the same order. Pelicans frequent inland and coastal waters where they feed principally on fish, catching them at or near the water surface. Gregarious birds, they often hunt cooperatively and breed colonially. Four white-plumaged species tend to nest on the ground, and four brown or grey-plumaged species nest mainly in trees.
The relationship between pelicans and people has often been contentious. The birds have been persecuted because of their perceived competition with commercial and recreational fishers. They have suffered from habitat destruction, disturbance and environmental pollution, and three species are of conservation concern. They also have a long history of cultural significance in mythology, and in Christian and heraldic iconography.
The genus Pelecanus was first formally described by Linnaeus in 1758, in the tenth edition of his Systema Naturae. He described the distinguishing characteristics as a straight bill hooked at the tip, linear nostrils, a bare face, and fully webbed feet. This early definition included frigatebirds, cormorants, and sulids as well as pelicans.[1] The name comes from the Ancient Greek word pelekan (πελεκάν),[2] which is itself derived from the word pelekys (πελεκυς) meaning “axe”.[3] In classical times, the word was applied to both the pelican and the woodpecker.[4]
Taxonomy[edit source | editbeta]
Main article: Pelecaniformes#Systematics and evolution
Pelicans give their name to the Pelecaniformes, an order which has had a varied taxonomic history. Tropicbirds, darters, cormorants, gannets, boobies and frigatebirds, all traditional members of the order, have since been reclassified: tropicbirds into their own order, Phaethontiformes, and the remainder into Suliformes. In their place, herons, ibises, spoonbills, the Hamerkop and the Shoebill have now been transferred into Pelecaniformes.[5] Molecular evidence suggests that the Shoebill and the Hamerkop form a sister group to the pelicans,[6] though there is some doubt as to the exact relationship between the three lineages
The fossil record shows that the pelican lineage has existed for at least 30 million years; the oldest known pelican fossil was found in Early Oligocene deposits at the Luberon in southeastern France and is remarkably similar to modern forms.[8] Its beak is almost complete and is morphologically identical to that of present day pelicans, showing that this advanced feeding apparatus was already in existence at the time.[8] An Early Miocene fossil has been named Miopelecanus gracilis on the basis of certain features originally considered unique but later thought to lie within the range of inter-specific variation in Pelecanus.[8] The Late Eocene Protopelicanus may be a pelecaniform or suliform – or a similar aquatic bird such as a pseudotooth (Pelagornithidae).[9] The supposed Miocene pelican Liptornis from Patagonia is a nomen dubium (of doubtful validity), being based on fragments providing insufficient evidence to support a valid description.[10]
Fossil finds from North America have been meagre, compared with Europe, which has a richer fossil record.[11] Several Pelecanus species have been described from fossil material, including:[12]
Pelecanus cadimurka, Rich & van Tets, 1981 (Late Pliocene, South Australia)

Jon Hammond in New York City just back from Germany music tour and 20th year at Musikmesse Frankfurt trade show…digging deep in to the archives to present a special show put together by Jon in 1993 in Frankfurt Hausen-BROTFABRIK (the old Bread Factory) Jon Hammond presenting French Pianist FRANCOISE PUJOL first time in Germany along with RICHARD BONA on bass from Cameroon & Paris, now living in NY and FRANCIS LASSUS – drums/batterie. A crazy story about how Jon convinced Bösendorfer Piano Company to bring their most expensive Imperial concert grand piano for Francoise to play there. The musicians got in to an argument at sound check and Jon Hammond almost had to play the famous piano himself, but thankfully it worked out and the tension made for some great playing! Never before heard (I wonder why?!) Also a new track from Hungarian saxophonist TONY LAKATOS’ brand-new album “Gypsy Colours” on the SKIP RECORDS label. Tony’s original composition “Mr. Fried” played and recorded with his brothers in Budapest Hungary. Thank you Tony and Lakatos Family! Jon’s trio live at Bruno’s in San Francisco featuring drummer RONNIE SMITH Jr. from Oakland CA and dedicated to United Airlines: “No Excess Baggage Blues” from Jon Hammond’s new album “NDR SESSIONS Projekt” for KYOU and KYCY 1550 AM, home of the Oakland A’s!

Große Freiheit Nr. 7 Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Große_Freiheit_Nr._7
Große Freiheit Nr. 7 (Great Freedom No. 7) is a 1944 German musical drama film directed by Helmut Käutner. It was named after Große Freiheit (grand freedom), a street next to Hamburg’s Reeperbahn road in the St. Pauli red light district.
The film is also known as Port of Freedom in the United Kingdom.
The film tells the story of the blond “singing sailor” Hannes Kröger (played by Hans Albers) who works in a Reeperbahn club and falls in love with a girl played by Ilse Werner.

Due to the threat of Allied bombing raids to Hamburg Harbour and to the Ufa studios in Berlin’s Neubabelsberg and Tempelhof when it was made in 1943 (May to November), most of the movie was shot in Prague’s Barrandov Studios by Helmut Käutner, as the first Agfa colorfilm by Terra. For a scene with a boat trip in Hamburg harbour warships had to be covered up.

Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels was dissatisfied, and demanded many changes to make the film more “German”, for instance by renaming the lead role from Jonny (as in Albers’ earlier hit song “Good bye, Jonny”) to Hannes. After a year of editing, the movie was banned anyway in Nazi Germany on 12 December 1944,[1][2] and was only shown outside of the Großdeutsches Reich proper, with the premiere on 15 December 1944 in Prague (then a Reichsprotektorat). It remained banned in Nazi Germany, opening on 6 September 1945 in Berlin’s Filmbühne Wien after the Allied victory. — at Große Freiheit Nr. 7
