Jack Nimitz


Although he has already established an extended and productive career, Jack Nimitz is definitely underrated, not obtaining a opportunity to lead his own record program until a 1995 set for Fresh Sound, when he had been 65. He began around the clarinet when he was 12, switching to alto 2 yrs later on, and gigging locally at 15. In 1949, Nimitz began specializing around the baritone and quickly was using such territory rings as those led by Bob Astor, Johnny Bothwell, and Daryl Harpa. From 1952-1953, he was back Washington, D.C., just before touring with Woody Herman (Oct 1953 to Sept 1955) and some weeks with Stan Kenton (1955-1956). He was a normal inside your home band in the Savoy and spent yet another 12 months with Kenton (1958-1959). Settling in LA, Nimitz became a occupied studio musician and in addition played with Expenses Berry, Benny Carter, Gerald Wilson, Supersax (since its from 1972), Expenses Perkins’ Big Music group, Bud Shank, Frank Strazzeri’s Woodwinds Western, the Lighthouse All-Stars, and some other high-quality jazz group that required a talented baritonist.

1 As an actor you have one thing and one thing only when you walk into a room: your own imagination. When you respect your own imagination no one else can shake your confidence. Simply put: Acting is a con game -- it's all about confidence.
