To hear some later Artie Shaw, go to the below website. Move around it and
click on "These Foolish Things".
There is also a lot of other good stuff there. Especially excerpts from his
bio like the one below.
Among the string of women he married were movie stars Lana Turner and Ava
Gardner. It was a world, he insists, not of his choosing, but hard to
"You run into a party and (a) woman comes up to you. She's the most
beautiful creature you ever saw -- Ava Gardner -- and says, 'I like you and
why don't we get together?' What are you going to say, 'No'? You'd have to
be an idiot. She was an incredible creature."
Hey, that's why I took up clarinet. :-) VBG
Seriously though, if this never happened to you, (maybe not Ava or Lana but
still desirable) you are not really a jazz musician. :-) VBG.
