HI
WHO MADE BUP THE 3 AMBASSADORS GUS ARNHEIMS VOCAL TRIO.AND WHO WAS DAVE MARSHALL?WAS HE ONE OF THEM?

LENNY
2nd Sax Bb Tenor
This Radio Archives CD lists the Ambassadors as Jack Smith (1913-2006), Marty Sperzel, and Al Teeter.
Jack's obit confirms the names - he later became well known as a solo singer and TV host.

Dave Marshall also recorded with George Olsen (1932) and Orville Knapp (1934). I believe he led his own band in the SoCal area later on.

Yep...not only that but I designed and researched several CD packages for Ren Brown's Renovation label - George Olsen v.1/2, Dick Himber v.1/2, Ted Weems v.1. Took my payment in kind whenever I could.

I'm in Iowa, where I grew up. In between I spent 18 years in the greater NYC metroplex, during which time I got to know John and quite a few other crack 78ers. Much of that time I spent as a freelance musician/singer.

BTW Lenny, I consider that time indispensible to discovering the great music of the pre-swing era. Back before the internet it traveled in very limited circles indeed. The audience for the rare genre of the depression years especially was limited to NY, NJ and environs.

They are a good trio. That Smith had lots of personality.
