Biography by Scott Yanow. One of the great post-war drummers, best known for his swing jazz drumming.
Sheldon Manne (June 11, 1920 – September 26, 1984), professionally known as Shelly Manne, was an American jazz drummer. Most frequently associated with West Coast jazz, he was known for his versatility and also played in a number of other styles, including Dixieland, swing, bebop, avant-garde jazz and fusion, as well as contributing to the musical background of hundreds of Hollywood films and television programs.
Drummer Shelly Manne opened his Manne Hole club on 4 November 1960 and the idea for it was inspired by the famous Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London, where Manne had played. In his book ‘Some of My Best Friends are Blues’, Ronnie Scott recalled that Shelly was an early visitor to the first Soho site of the club. I’m pretty certain that it was Shelly’s enthusiasm for club atmosphere that prompted him to open his Manne Hole Club in Hollywood in November 1960," said Scott

A great survey of Shelly Manne's recording with the Contemporary label. The variety of groups and ensembles, as well as a diverse selection of material, makes this a perfect intro to Mr. Manne and his art. The side (and front) men are a veritable 'who's who' of the west coast jazz scene from the early '50s on. Highly recommended to anyone starting to get to know this very talented musician.
