Glenn Miller trombonist Paul Tanner dies at 95
Feb. 6, 2013, 1:09 PM EST
CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) -- Paul Tanner, a trombonist with the Glenn Miller Orchestra who later played a space-age instrument on the Beach Boys hit "Good Vibrations," has died at 95.

Bing: More on Paul Tanner

His stepson, Douglas Darnell, of Youngstown, Ohio, says Tanner died of pneumonia Tuesday morning at an assisted living center in Carlsbad, Calif.

Tanner performed with Miller from 1938 to 1942. During his long career, he also worked as a movie studio and ABC musician in California, and performed with Tex Beneke, Henry Mancini and Arturo Toscanini, among others.

He also helped develop the electro-theremin, a keyboard-style electronic instrument. Tanner provided its eerie sound on several Beach Boys recordings, including "Good Vibrations."

Tanner also was a music professor at UCLA for 23 years and helped write several books.

Jazz great Donald Byrd dies at 80
Feb. 7, 2013, 7:00 PM EST

WENN

Influential jazz great Donald Byrd has died, aged 80.

Bing: Videos of Donald Byrd

The news was announced by the trumpeter's nephew Alex Bugnon, who told AmoebaMusic.com that certain family members were trying to keep the death under "an unnecessary shroud of secrecy."

Byrd reportedly passed away on Monday, but details of his death have not been released.

The jazz man launched his career with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers in the 1950s and performed alongside the likes of John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk and Herbie Hancock.

His Blue Note Records album "Black Byrd" became a bestseller for the iconic company and led to the trumpeter forming a group called The Blackbyrds in the 1970s.

Byrd's work has been sampled by hip-hop artists including Public Enemy, Nas and the Pharcyde.

A statement from his nephew reads: "Let's remember Donald as a one of a kind pioneer of the trumpet, of the many styles of music he took on, of music education. In sum, Donald was an avid, eternal student of music, until his death."

Singer/Guitarist Tony Sheridan
early collaborator of The Beatles
May 21, 1940 - Feb 16, 2013

BBC News: Tony Sheridan

Official Tony Sheridan site

Sheridan and the Beatles recorded nine songs together, with Sheridan singing on seven of them ("My Bonnie," "The Saints," "Why (Can't You Love Me Again)," "Nobody's Child," "Take Out Some Insurance On Me, Baby," "Sweet Georgia Brown" and "Swanee River").
But the Beatles were listed as The Beat Brothers. (The word “Beatles” did not translate in German—except as a slang term for the male sex organ).
