Subject: [RedHotJazz] val salata
i joined this group some time ago- and things happened never came to
val salata or vladamir salata was my uncle. he died in france just
after ww11 the circumstances were never really explained. he either
jumped from a two story window- or was pushed- we will never know
but on to his music
he played with all the usual of his time, teagarden, i know for sure
mamaybe the dorsey brothers and for a time had his own band.
i know he played in las vegas too, the frontier?
i found a picture of him some time ago on the web- so their must be
he was a trained classical pianst, but prefered boogie woogie over
anything and he played the trumpet
has any one heard of him?
to find his music would be so great-
regards to all
