Friday Open Thread: African American Women Bandleaders

HAPPY FRIDAY, P.O.U.!

We continue our series on African American Women Bandleaders….

LIL HARDIN ARMSTRONG

jazzband_lilarmstrong

Lil Hardin Armstrong (February 3, 1898 – August 27, 1971) was a jazz pianist, composer, arranger, singer, and bandleader, and the second wife of Louis Armstrong with whom she collaborated on many recordings in the 1920s.

Hardin’s compositions include “Struttin’ With Some Barbecue”, “Don’t Jive Me”, “Two Deuces”, “Knee Drops”, “Doin’ the Suzie-Q”, “Just For a Thrill” (which became a major hit when revived by Ray Charles in 1959), “Clip Joint”, and “Bad Boy” (a minor hit for Ringo Starr in 1978), her composition “Oriental Swing” was sampled heavily to create Parov Stelar’s 2012 retro-song “Booty Swing,” which in turn gained notoriety when it was used in a 2013 Chevrolet commercial.[1][2]

Background

She was born as Lillian Hardin in Memphis, Tennessee, where she grew up in a household with her grandmother, Priscilla Martin, a former slave from near Oxford, Mississippi.[3] During her early years, Hardin was taught hymns, spirituals, and Classics on the piano. She was drawn to popular music and later blues.

Early education and mentors

Hardin first received piano instruction from her third grade teacher, Miss Violet White, then her mother enrolled her in Mrs. Hook’s School of Music. It was at Fisk University, a college for African Americans located in downtown Nashville, that Hardin was taught a more acceptable approach to the instrument. Hardin stayed at the school for one year, returning to Memphis in 1917.[4] In August 1918, she moved to Chicago with her mother and stepfather. By then, she had become proficient in reading music, a skill that landed her a job as a sheet music demonstrator at Jones Music Store.[5]

The store had been paying Hardin $3 a week, but Duhé offered $22.50. Knowing that her mother would not approve of her working in a cabaret, she made it known that her new job was playing for a dancing school. Three weeks later, the band moved on to a better booking at the De Luxe Café, where the entertainers included Florence Mills and Cora Green. From there, the band moved up to the jewel of Chicago’s night life, the Dreamland. Here the principal entertainers were Alberta Hunter and Ollie Powers, and there was no finer night spot in Chicago. When King Oliver’s Creole Jazz Band replaced Duhé’s group at the Dreamland, Oliver asked Hardin to stay with him. She was with Oliver at the Dreamland in 1921, when an offer came for the orchestra to play a six-month engagement at San Francisco’s Pergola Ballroom. At the end of that booking, Hardin returned to Chicago while the rest of the Oliver band went on to Los Angeles.

Marriages and divorces

In Chicago, Hardin went back to work at the Dreamland, as pianist in an orchestra for Mae Brady, a violinist and vaudeville stalwart. While there, she fell for Jimmie Johnson, a young singer from Washington, D.C., whom she married on August 22, 1922. The marriage was short-lived, ending in divorce. In the meantime, the Oliver band returned from California and opened at the Royal Gardens, with Bertha Gonzales at the piano, but soon found itself back at the Dreamland, with Hardin at the piano.

His band was enjoying enormous success at the Dreamland when King Oliver sent for Louis Armstrong to join as second cornetist. Armstrong was beginning to make a name for himself in their hometown, New Orleans, and regarded Oliver (“Papa Joe”) as his mentor. Some say that Oliver saw Louis as a threat to his jazz throne and decided that having him in his band was a good form of containment, although by all accounts both cornetists enjoyed working together. At first, Hardin was unimpressed with Louis, who arrived in Chicago wearing clothes and a hair style that she deemed to be “too country” for Chicago, but she worked to “take the country out of him” and a romance developed (to the surprise of other band members, some of whom had been trying to woo pretty Hardin for some time with no success). She already had divorce experience and helped Louis get a divorce from his first wife Daisy, from whom he had separated back in New Orleans. Hardin and Louis were married on February 4, 1924.

Hardin took Louis shopping and taught him how to dress more fashionably—she also got rid of his bangs, and began working on his career. Recognizing his extraordinary talent, she felt that he was wasting it in a secondary role. Louis was happy to be playing next to his idol, but Hardin eventually persuaded him to leave Oliver and go it on his own. Armstrong eventually resigned from Oliver’s band and, in September 1924, accepted a job with Fletcher Henderson in New York City. Hardin stayed in Chicago, first with Oliver, then leading a band of her own. When Hardin’s band got a job at the Dreamland Café in Chicago, the following year, she prepared for Louis’ return to Chicago by having a huge banner made to advertise him as “The World’s Greatest Trumpet Player”.[5]

Louis was gaining an impressive reputation when Richard M.

Jones convinced Okeh Records to make a series of sessions under his name: the classic Armstrong “Hot Five” recordings. With Hardin at the piano, Kid Ory on trombone, Johnny Dodds on clarinet, and Johnny St. Cyr on banjo, this stellar group rehearsed at Louis and Hardin’s residence on Chicago’s East 41st Street and held its first session on November 15, 1925. Few recordings are as celebrated as the ones made by the Hot Five (and, sometimes, with Earl Hines replacing Hardin, the “Hot Seven”) between then and the end of 1928. Hardin had actually recorded five selections for Vocalion, leading the same group, in April and May 1926. She also recorded a session for Columbia Records as the New Orleans Wanderers.

In the late 1920s Hardin and Louis grew apart. Armstrong formed a new Hot Five, with Earl Hines on piano. Hardin reformed her own band with Freddie Keppard on cornet (whom Hardin considered second only to Louis). Louis and Hardin separated in 1931, when he had begun a liaison with Alpha Smith, who threatened to sue Armstrong for breach of promise, so he begged Hardin not to grant him a divorce.

Later years

In the 1930s, sometimes billing herself as “Mrs. Louis Armstrong”, Hardin led an “All Girl Orchestra”, then a mixed gender Big Band which broadcast nationally over the NBC radio network. The same decade she recorded a series of sides for Decca Records as a swing vocalist, and appeared as piano accompanist for many other singers. She also recorded with Red Allen.

Solo work

In the late 1940s and early 1950s, Hardin worked mostly as a soloist singing and playing piano. In the late 1940s, she decided to leave the music and become a tailor, so she took a course in tailoring. Her graduation project was to make a tuxedo for Louis. It was displayed prominently at a New York cocktail party she threw to announce her new field of endeavor. “They looked at Louis’ tux and all the other things I had made and they were very impressed”, she recalled, “but then someone asked me to play the piano. That’s when I knew that I would never be able to leave the music business.” Louis wore Hardin’s tuxedo and she continued to tailor, but only as a sideline and then only for friends. Her shirts, which friends received regularly on birthdays, proudly bore a label with her mother’s name, “Decie”, and beneath that, “Hand made by Lil Armstrong.”

Hardin eventually returned to Chicago and the house on East 41st Street. She also made a trip to Europe and had a brief love affair in France, but mostly she worked around Chicago, often with fellow Chicagoans. Collaborators included Red Saunders, Joe Williams, Oscar Brown, Jr., and Little Brother Montgomery.

In the 1950s, Hardin recorded a biographical narrative for Riverside’s Bill Grauer, which was issued in LP form. She would again appear on that label in 1961, participating in its “Chicago: The Living Legends” project as accompanist for Alberta Hunter and leader of her own hastily assembled big band. The Riverside recordings led to her inclusion in a star-studded 1961 NBC network special, “Chicago and All That Jazz,” and a follow-up album released through the Verve Records imprint. In 1962, Hardin began writing her autobiography, in collaboration with Chris Albertson, but she had second thoughts when she realized that such a book could not be written without including personal experiences that might discomfit Louis Armstrong, so the project was shelved until his death. She died before she was able to finish the book.[6]

Death

jazzband_lilarmstrong2When Armstrong died, in 1971, Hardin was deeply shaken by the loss. She traveled to New York for the funeral and rode in the family car. Returning to Chicago, Hardin felt that work on her autobiography could now continue, but the following month, performing at a televised memorial concert for Louis, Lil Hardin Armstrong collapsed at the piano and died on the way to the hospital. In the aftermath of her funeral, her letters and the unfinished manuscript of her autobiography disappeared from her house.[7]

    Angry Right-Wingers Turn On Trump, Burn Their ‘Make America Great Again’ Hats
    They’re burning mad.

    Many one-time supporters of President Donald Trump are so red hot over his possible immigration deal with Democratic leaders that they’re burning their “Make America Great Again” hats.

    The angry right-wingers shared images of the charred caps on social media under the #burnmyMAGAhat hashtag. They also referred to the president as #AmnestyDon and some even called for him to be impeached.

    A white security officer told police he was shot by a black man. Turns out, he’d shot himself.
    Sept 15, 2017

    In a dimly lit, wooded area on the southwest side of St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minn., the handgun Brent Ahlers brought to work discharged.

    As a security officer at the Catholic university, Ahlers knew the school did not typically arm its personnel, and he feared that bringing his weapon on campus would lead to his firing, police said.

    And so, with blood spewing from the gunshot wound to his shoulder, Ahlers crafted a story.

    At about 9:30 Tuesday night, Ahlers, who is white, told St. Paul police that he’d been shot by a black man with a “short Afro” who was wearing a navy sweatshirt.

    Albright: Trump should focus on himself instead of ‘always blaming Obama’

    Source: The Hill

    BY JOSH DELK – 09/15/17 09:34 AM EDT

    Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on Friday suggested that President Trump think “about what he was doing” in office instead of targeting former President Obama on Twitter.

    “The Obama administration worked very hard on dealing with the terrorist issues. It would be really nice if President Trump actually thought about what he was doing rather than always blaming president Obama,” Albright said on CNN.

    Albright also said that she had “not particularly” seen a difference in U.S. efforts against terrorism under President Trump over his nine months in office.

    Her comments followed Trump’s condemnation of a terrorist attack in London Friday, during which he touted his work against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

      That’s the result of allowing White people to say being called a racist is the worst thing. They made it worst than being subjected to racism. That was a result of Session’s first attempt at confirmation when he was rejected. We’ve gone backwards by debating with racists. it will always focus on their feelings.

    The Loneliest President
    September 15, 2017 at 7:02 am EDT

    His critics might see his growing isolation as a product of his political inexperience—an aversion to the norms of the legislative process, a penchant for topsy-turvy management. But as unprecedented as this might be in the annals of the West Wing, it’s merely a continuation of a lifelong pattern of behavior for Trump. Take away the Pennsylvania Avenue address, the never-ending list of domestic and international crises, and the couldn’t-be-higher geopolitical stakes—and this looks very much like … Trump throughout his entire existence. Isolated is how he’s always operated.

    The middle son of a stony, workaholic father with whom he had an ‘almost businesslike’ relationship, Trump is a double divorcee, a boss with a professed distaste for having partners or shareholders, a television-tethered, hamburger-eating homebody and a germaphobe who has described shaking hands as ‘terrible,’ ‘barbaric’ and ‘one of the curses of American society.’ He’s been a loner most of his life.

    I’m laughing at Graham and Cassidy hyping up their plan and lying about momentum in support of their legislation. First of all the bill has no CBO score and it usually takes around 2 weeks to produce a score which means it most likely won’t come out before the September 30th expiration date. Second, the bill doesn’t have the votes for Motion to proceed let alone the votes for passage. Rand Paul already came out against the bill because he says it preserves 90% of the ACA, Collins is a hard no, I don’t see Murkowski supporting this, and McCain says that we must have regular order for any legislation. Without a CBO score and the Byrd bath reconciliation can’t be used and it will be subject to 60 votes. They don’t have a CBO score, no votes for passage, and republican leaders in the senate are not even pushing for the bill or working on it. They don’t have the time to even attempt a vote. So it’s clear that Graham and Cassidy are lying and hyping things up to make it seem like they have momentum.

    This child sat for the pledge — so his teacher ‘violently’ snatched him from his chair, he says
    September 15 at 12:07 PM

    A teacher in eastern Michigan has been placed on administrative leave after she was accused of “violently snatching” a sixth-grade student from his chair as he stayed seated for the Pledge of Allegiance.

    Brian Chaney of Farmington Hills, Mich., said a teacher consultant forced his 11-year-old son, Stone, to stand for the pledge late last week at East Middle School. Chaney called the action a violation of his son’s civil rights, explaining that Stone had been making a personal decision not to salute the American flag — but to honor God and his family — for the past several years.

    It had not been a problem, his father said, until now.

    • Bless Mr. Chaney for having restraint, because someone putting their hands on your child earns an automatic beat down.

      Reading the part about the 1943 ruling reminds me of when I was in elementary school…there were students who didn’t pledge allegiance for religious reasons, but they still had to stand.

    Trump cuts to ObamaCare outreach to hit red states most
    09/15/17 06:00 AM

    The Trump administration’s decision to slash outreach funding for ObamaCare will hit red states the hardest.
    The move last month to cut 90 percent of funds to spur signups for healthcare.gov is likely to lead to fewer young and healthy people in the insurance pool — and thus higher costs in states with majority Trump voters, according to experts.

    But Trump has been threatening to let ObamaCare implode for months and has not shouldered much blame for the consequences of that uncertainty, including high premiums and lack of insurers in some markets.

    “Trump is not going to get blamed for this,” Republican strategist Ford O’Connell said. “The problems with ObamaCare need to be fixed, and it needs to be done by Congress.”
    Late last month, in the latest sign of the Trump’s distaste of the law, Department of Health and Human Services officials said funding for advertising and other outreach for ObamaCare enrollment would be cut from $100 million last year to $10 million this year.

    “Most of America is in healthcare.gov and it’s mostly all red states, and folks in those states are at risk of losing their opportunity, or not getting their opportunity to sign up” for health care, said Karen Pollitz, a Kaiser Family Foundation senior fellow.

    Some 39 states rely on the federal government and federal insurance exchange in some form; 90 percent of those are Republican-majority states, according to Kaiser.

    Ohio fireman suspended for saying he would rescue a dog from a burning building before saving a ‘n*gger’
    15 SEP 2017 AT 13:19 ET

    A fireman from Franklin Township in Ohio has been suspended for posting on Facebook that he would rather save a dog than a “n*gger” during an emergency.

    According to WHIO, volunteer fireman Tyler Roysdon has been suspended over the racist Facebook post which has since been taken down.

    The report notes that Roysdon wrote that if he had to choose between saving a dog and an African American man from a burning building, he’d save the dog’s life because “one dog is more important than a million n*ggers.”

    Despite being a volunteer, the Ohio firefighter is paid for when his services are needed — but will not be called while his case is under review.

    Cop who fatally shot black man was being ‘ambiguous’ when he said he’d ‘kill this motherf*cker’: judge

    http://www.rawstory.com/2017/09/cop-who-fatally-shot-black-man-was-being-ambiguous-when-he-said-hed-kill-this-motherfcker-judge/?comments=disqus

    Former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley was acquitted of
    first-degree murder on Friday over the fatal 2011 shooting of a black
    man — despite the fact that an audio recording of Stockley revealed that he had vowed to kill him.

    As reported by KMOV reporter Coutney Bryant, Judge Timothy Wilson ruled on Friday that Stockley’s declaration that
    “we’re going to kill this motherf*cker” shortly before the fatal
    shooting of 24-year-old Anthony Lamar Smith was an “ambiguous” statement that did not show a definitive desire to kill.

    Stockley originally said he wanted to kill Smith — whom police had
    pursued on suspicion of him taking part in a drug deal — in the wake
    of a car chase that lasted for around three miles before he and his
    fellow officers caught up to Smith.

    “It is apparent from the dash cam audio and video that the pursuit
    was stressful,” ruled Wilson. “People say all kinds of things in the
    heat of the moment or while in stressful situations.”

    He then added that Stockley saying that he was going to “kill this
    motherf*cker” was an “ambiguous” statement, “depending on the
    circumstance.”

    Stockley maintained that the shooting of Smith was entirely in self
    defense because he believed Smith was about to fire a gun at him —
    despite the fact that forensics analysts could only find Stockley’s DNA on the weapon that was supposedly owned by Smith.

    During the shooting, Stockley was also in possession of a
    department-issued AK-47 — which he was not authorized to use. Despite this, Wilson ruled that his illegal use of the weapon was not relevant to whether he had committed first-degree murder.

    I always find it funny when some white person who hates on Obama says what is Obama’s legacy besides race while also complaining about the laws he signed and actions he took. Like which one is it? Did Obama push his agenda in a ruthless manner or he really did nothing and took vacations. They can’t stick to a talking point since they can’t admit that a black man did a lot of historical things.

    • GOVCHRIS1988

      Thats the madness of racism. That Barack Obama was both a Machiavellian Mastermind hellbent on evil and a lazy lout who just drained the taxpayers money. It has always been like that when dealing with racism. Two contradictory beliefs. Were dangerous, yet childlike and meek. We’re ugly and undesirable, yet they’ve used us for pleasure and use us as guides for how white women should look.

    Hola Fam! Just checking in & hoping all is well with you. I almost feel guilty that I am feeling so happy these few days. Daughter’s health continues to improve. We took a short walk together yesterday & she did very well. I love my new casa & being so close to all my grandchildren. Our little dog Zena wasn’t too sure about all this at first but she has settled in & made a few doggie friends & even a kitty who walks a leash with her person. Zena was intrigued when she first saw this but enjoys walking with a cat on a leash, lol.

    Hubby grumbles a bit about the cooler weather & the lack of a corner bodega where he could go for the cafe & chats with his amigos but I ordered him thermal underwear, sweats, flannel shirts & warm socks. He has also met one or two neighbors who seem simpatico plus he has Daughter’s FIL for companionship so it’s working.

    Life is good & I will enjoy it day by day.

    • Alma98

      Hola AG! Happy to hear your baby girl is doing well and you’re all loving your new house. Maybe hubby can find a senior center or a community center and meet some folks lol. Your Zena story reminds of one of my fave pics hahaha. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d951ba9d05a217f21a5789048f1cf05fa192b5057bf5a8926578ac9c3ac8a1d6.jpg

        • Alma98

          LOL

    • BoomerGal

      Don’t ever feel guilty for happiness and I am so happy for you and your family. So glad to hear that daughter is coming along nicely. Give Zena a good rub and a pat for me and best wishes to your hubby.

      • Aquagranny911

        Boom you would really have enjoyed Zena’s first reactions to her new home. First she gave it a big stink eye because the furniture hadn’t been delivered yet so we camped out with a blow up bed. Then she explored the back yard & discovered there were no chickens or fish pond for her to supervise or gardens.

        However, when she saw the wonderful hot tub our SIL built as a surprise for us she perked way up. I’m not sure if you are supposed to do this but we turned down the heat & let her swim with us. We washed her carefully after because of the chemicals so her skin would not get irritated. She loves it! What ever else is in her DNA, some kind of water breed is def big.

        • BoomerGal

          LOL!!! I’m sure she misses those chickens to protect and herd!! But so glad she enjoys the water!! Princy hates water but will tolerate a bath with the help of 2 or 3 people! I can image Zena sniffing the place out for curiosity and approval!! LOL!! They are SO smart, each in their own way!!

          • Aquagranny911

            Daughter has four chickens at her casa. Her lazy basset rescue can’t be bothered to herd anything but her next meal! Zena can get her chicken herding there. Or maybe we will get a few chickens ourselves & perhaps a goat since we now have a lawn to mow. Actually my SIL will take care of that but I would like a goat or two.
