OCTET

PROM TO ROM AND CAMPUS HOP

Description:
Shortly after it was formed in 1953, the Dave Pell Octet won best new combo of the year in polls conducted by America's Daily News and Mirror newspapers. Six of its eight members were included in Down Beat magazine's 1953 poll of the top musicians in the country. Pell and his group flipped fans everywhere they appeared, specializing in Proms and School Dances, and becoming the first name jazz group ever to play for dancing at one of the top Sunset Strip clubs, The Crescendo, and also the Hollywood Palladium. Its jazz was described variously as tasty, sophisticated, subtle, warm, bright, clean, friendly, inventive, happy, and a complete show and concert rolled into one.
