that would be BRUCE, Bruce Raeburn; Boyd was his father

by Phil Schaap

Comrades Bix:
The Major Domo of the Hogan Jazz Archives at Tulane in New Orleans is Bruce Raeburn. It was BRUCE, not Boyd, Raeburn who made the wonderful Bix & New Orleans presentation at the 2007 Bix Fest. I was there for it. Bruce and his presentation were splendid. I've been called to Davenport for the Bix Fest in 1976 and 2007; so, I have a gig lined up for 2038. Boyd Raeburn was a famous bandleader who launched his career in 1933. His Big Band was most successful in the mid-1940s when it had embraced a "progressive"/BeBop flavor.
