Dave Pell • Dave Pell Plays Henry Mancini


Biography by Richard S. Ginell
Dave Pell started out touring with the Tony Pastor, Bob Astor, and Bobby Sherwood bands as a teenager, before moving to California in the mid-'40s. He found work with Bob Crosby on the latter's Ford radio show in 1946, then played with the Les Brown band from 1947 to 1955. Drawing from the ranks of the Brown band, he began leading his own groups in 1953, usually in an octet format, augmented by guests like Pepper Adams, Benny Carter, Mel Lewis, Red Mitchell, Marty Paich, and Art Pepper. He also played as a sideman on records by Shorty Rogers, Pete Rugolo, Benny Goodman, and Gene Krupa in the 1950s, while recording under his own name for Atlantic, Kapp, Coral, Capitol, and RCA Victor. His primary focus of activity in the 1950s and '60s was in the record business, working as a producer for the budget Tops label in the '50s, and Liberty (where he supervised a few hit pop/rock records for Gary Lewis & the Playboys) and briefly Uni in the '60s. He formed a group in the late '70s called Prez Conference, a variation on the theme of Supersax, as a tribute to Lester Young, recording two albums for GNP/Crescendo. In the '80s and '90s, Pell revived his octet for recordings on the Fresh Sound (1984) and Headfirst (1988) labels, and sporadic live dates in the Los Angeles area, including an appearance at the Jazz West Coast festival in 1994.

Encontró trabajo con Bob Crosby en el programa de radio de este último en 1946, y luego tocó con la banda de Les Brown de 1947 a 1955. Procedente de las filas de la banda Brown, comenzó a liderar sus propios grupos en 1953, normalmente en formato de octeto, aumentado por invitados como Pepper Adams, Benny Carter, Mel Lewis, Red Mitchell, Marty Paich y Art Pepper. También tocó como sideman en discos de Shorty Rogers, Pete Rugolo, Benny Goodman y Gene Krupa en los años 50, mientras grababa bajo su propio nombre para Atlantic, Kapp, Coral, Capitol y RCA Victor.

Formó un grupo a finales de los 70 llamado Prez Conference, una variación del tema de Supersax, como tributo a Lester Young, grabando dos álbumes para GNP/Crescendo. En los años 80 y 90, Pell revivió su octeto para grabaciones en los sellos Fresh Sound (1984) y Headfirst (1988), y fechas esporádicas en vivo en el área de Los Ángeles, incluyendo una aparición en el festival Jazz West Coast en 1994.
