Glen Gray & The Casa Loma Orchestra - Blue moon (1935) Glen Gray Knoblauch, known as Glen Gray, (June 7,1900 - Aug.23,1963, Plymouth, Massachusetts) was a jazz saxophonist and leader of the Casa Loma Orchestra.

He attended Illinois Wesleyan University but left to work for the Santa Fe Railroad. In 1927, his Orange Blossoms Band was renamed the Casa Loma Orchestra, after Casa Loma in Toronto, where the band played for eight months. Gray collaborated with the jazz musician Jean Goldkette and with trumpeter/arranger Salvador Camarata. Glen Gray & The Casa Loma Orchestra - Blue moon (1935)

1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake Shakemap Animation high quality: as extracted from earthquake.usgs.gov Explanation of Colors The movies color the landscape in each frame according to the maximum (peak) intensity of shaking (amplitude of the ground motion) up to that point in time. In order to show the intensity of the current shaking, the colors darken as the shaking intensifies. At some locations, the most intense shaking lasts for several seconds, so the colors will darken as seismic waves continue to cause strong shaking. Comparison with 1906 Earthquake One striking observation for those who experienced the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake's shaking is the comparison of the extent and intensity of shaking with the 1906 earthquake. The Loma Prieta rupture was about 30 times smaller in energy than the great 1906 earthquake. The rupture in the Loma Prieta earthquake began at a depth of about 19.2km (12 miles) and appears to have ruptured a 40km (25 miles) long portion of the San Andreas fault. Unlike the 1906 earthquake, the rupture in the Loma Prieta earthquake did not reach the surface. As in the 1906 earthquake, the strongest shaking was concentrated along the fault. In 1989 the two areas of most intense shaking were north and south of the epicenter in the Santa Cruz mountains. Shaking in the Marina District and Oakland The simulations do not single out either the Marina District or Oakland as having experienced especially strong shaking. These computer simulations resolve features as small as 195m (650 feet ...

Casa Loma The Casa Loma estate constructed between 1907 and 1914, was home to the prominent Toronto financier Sir Henry Pellatt and his wife Mary.

This renowned landmark features unique architecture, soaring ceilings, rich wood carving, sumptuous marble and luminous stained glass. You can also explore secret passages, view the city from one of two towers, and traverse an 800-foot tunnel to luxurious stables. Five acres of beautiful estate gardens surround the castle and offer sparkling fountains, unique sculpture and dazzling displays of rare annuals and perennials that change with the seasons.

Casa Loma Orch. - Talk Of The Town, 1942 The Casa Loma Orchestra was an American swing band active from 1927 to 1963. It did not tour after 1950 but continued to record as a studio group. The band was organized in 1927, in Detroit, by Jean Goldkette, a French born pianist, who had over 20 bands under his name by the mid-'20s . The one which is remembered today was his main unit which recorded for Victor during 1924-29; that is the one who included Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey and Joe Venuti and the legendary cornetist Bix Beiderbecke . In 1927 Paul Whiteman hired away most of Goldkette's top jazz players (including Bix and Trumbauer) and -- from the remaining musicians plus a few new ones (including the saxophonist, Glen Gray) Jean Goldkette organized the Orange Blossoms. However, in 1928 during their stay in Toronto, Canada, Glen Gray took over the leadership and the band had adopted the Casa Loma name, by the time of its first recordings in 1929, when it was the house band at Casa Loma in Toronto, which was then operating as a hotel. From 1929 until the rapid multiplication in the number of swing bands from 1935 on, the Casa Loma Orchestra was one of the top North American dance bands, featuring trombonist Pee Wee Hunt, trumpeter Frank L. Ryerson, trumpeter Sonny Dunham, clarinetist Clarence Hutchenrider, drummer Tony Briglia and singer Kenny Sargent. Arrangements were by Gene Gifford, who also composed much of the band's book, Salvador "Tutti" Camarata and Horace Henderson. Their mid-1930s appearances on the long ...
Put on your Old Grey Bonnet -Casa Loma Orch. Not a great example of this band, but I am posting it because it is one of the records that I rescued when clearing out the things my late Father had kept, and I remember him playing it and singing along with it to me as a child. The orchestra was first assembled by Jean Goldkette, a French-born pianist, in Canada in 1927, but after losing many star players (who went on to become famous in their own right) to Paul Whiteman he re-organised it as "The Orange Blossoms" and secured work at The Casa Loma Hotel in Toronto. In 1928, Glen Gray (one of his saxophonists, -full name Glen Gray Knoblaugh) took over and re-named the band after the hotel. The orchestra under Gray went on performing, well into the 1940's, and became one of the "yardsticks" by which many of the early dance bands were measured.
78s - Maniacs' Ball - Casa Loma Orchestra A fantastic Hot jazz song from 1932 on the Brunswick label.The Casa Loma Orchestra was an American swing band active from 1927 to 1963. It did not tour after 1950 but continued to record as a studio group. It began its existence in 1927 as the Orange Blossoms, one of several Detroit-area groups that came out of the Jean Goldkette office. It was a co-operative organization, fronted for the first few years by violinist Hank Biagini, although the eventual leader, saxophonist Glen Gray (1900-1963) was from the very beginning "first among equals." The band had adopted the Casa Loma name by the time of its first recordings in 1929, shortly after it played an Eight month engagement at Casa Loma in Toronto, which was then operating as a hotel. The band never actually played the Casa Loma under that name, as it appeared there under its original name of the Orange Blossoms. From 1929 until the rapid multiplication in the number of swing bands from 1935 on, the Casa Loma Orchestra was one of the top North American dance bands, featuring trombonist Pee Wee Hunt, trumpeter Frank L.

The Lodge at Granot Loma on Lake Superior Explore it all at: Granot Loma, north of Marquette in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, is a National Historic Landmark begun by Louis and Marie Kaufman in 1919, restored to its former grandeur in 1987 by Tom Baldwin. Architectural Digest, "The International Magazine of Fine Interior Design", featured Granot Loma in its May, 1995 edition with these words: "The name may sound vaguely Continental, but Granot Loma, rising majestically from the south shore of Lake Superior, is as American as a great American house can be. One of the country's most important examples of rustic architecture, Granot Loma is a 26000-square-foot log palace, an extravaganza of wood and stone. Begun in 1919 by Michigan banker Louis Graveraet Kaufman, it has fifty rooms and luxurious appointments, and it appealed to guests from Hollywood to New York, including George Gershwin, Fred Astaire, Cole Porter and Mary Pickford."
