The Great Stanton Street Trumpet Player: Manny Klein
The Song Is Called That's A Plenty
Featuring Benny Goodman On Clarinet, Ray Sherman On Piano, Dick Nash On Trombone, Manny Klein On Trumpet, Jimmy Wyble On Guitar, Morty Corb On Bass, Mickey Sheen On Drums.Recorded June 1961.
Along with the many gigs Manny had, he played in Artie's Shaw band in the early 1940's. He was 2 years older than Artie. Could their paths have crossed on the LES? Did Manny (living at 83 Stanton Street) go to PS 20 along with next door neighbor Jacob Javits (living at 85)? btw on May 23rd it will be Artie Shaw's 100th birthday.
