Band Leader Les Brown Tells Differences
Between College, Ballroom Audiences
By Lorna Larson and
Orchestra wives ?
“Sometimes they catch us,” said
Les Brown Friday afternoon.
But usually they stay home, the
famous band leader remarked
shortly after arriving by plane at
the Eugene airport with his band.
Brown’s orchestra played Friday
night for the Sophomore Whis
“All you have to do to become
a hit band is get a record contract
and make hit records,” he smiled.
“Or, like Francis Craig, you can
get a band, make a record like
"Near You,” break up the band,
and have the song become a hit a
The Whiskerino was Brown’s
first college dance date this fall. “I
really do like to play college
dances,” Brown revealed while re
laxing in the back seat of a car
enroute to the Eugene Hotel.
He prefers college audiences be
cause ‘‘they know more than other
crowds and recognize good music
when they hear it.”
Ballroom dancers like jazz, the
orchestra leader commented. “We
usually play jazz about every other
number, while for college crowds
we’ll play three or four jazz num
bers an evening.”
Brown finds it hard to tell which
songs will be hits. “Very seldom
my opinion of a good song jibes
with that of the public,” he said,
"but then if everyone could tell
hits, everyone would be writing
them. For instance, we had no idea
‘I've Got My Love to Keep Me
Warm’ would be a hit.”
“Sometimes I think a song: is
commercial but not good,” Brown
explained. “We try to make up for
it by good arrangements.”
Modern dance music doesn’t oc
cupy all his time, however. He dir
ected the Denver Symphony Or
chestra on one occasion, and this
summer he conducted a concert
band in Mason City, Iowa.
He explains his interest in clas
sics as stemming from years spent
at a conservatory in Ithaca, N. Y.,
where “they didn’t teach jazz.”
Brown’s home contains a library of
“about 500 symphonies.”
Next stop for the orchestra will
be the University of Washington
campus in Seattle. They’re taking
off at 10 a.m. Saturday to “make
Seattle in time for the game.”
