Biography

 
 
Shelly Manne recorded hundreds of albums over a span of forty years, led countless bands with his good humor and skill, and performed jazz, swing, bebop, Dixieland, avant-garde jazz, and fusion.

Sheldon Manne’s father, Max Manne (also a famous drummer), introduced son Shelly to a life of music as a child. Another famous drummer and family friend, Billy Gladstone, gave Shelly Manne his first drum lesson: "Billy was like a second father to me. I'll never forget that first lesson he gave me. Billy put me in that room downstairs at the Radio City Music Hall, where they kept all the percussion instruments. He showed me how to set up the drums I got and how to hold the sticks. Then, he put Count Basie's 'Topsy' on the phonograph, and as he walked out of the room, he said, 'Play!' That was my first lesson, and I've been grateful for that ever since."

During his teenage years, Shelly Manne performed on trans-Atlantic ships. Shelly Manne played with Bobby Byrne, Joe Marsala, Bob Astor, Raymond Scott, Will Bradley, and Les Brown, before joining the Coast Guard in 1942. After serving for three years, Shelly began touring with Stan Kenton. Shelly Manne went on to perform with Charlie Ventura, Kai Winding, Lou Stein, and Buddy Stewart. Between 1950 and 1951 Shelly Manne performed with Woody Herman’s big band.

In 1952, Shelly Manne and his wife, ex-Rockette Florence “Flip” Butterfield, moved to Southern California, where they raised award-winning horses. The move to the West Coat expanded Shelly’s repertoire to include the unique West Coast jazz movement, as well as the Hollywood film scene.

Shelly Manne led many bands from the West Coast, including Shelly Manne and His Men with Stu Williamson, Charlie Mariano, Russ Freeman, and Leroy Vinnegar. Shelly’s jazz interpretation of My Fair Lady, with Andre Previn and Leroy Vinnegar, was the best-selling jazz album of 1956. Shelly also operated a jazz club in Hollywood, Shelly’s Manne-Hole. Shelly Manne led the house band and opened his doors to countless combos and big bands. Shelly regularly recorded in L.A. studios, both on albums and films, including The Five Pennies and The Gene Krupa Story. Shelly Manne frequented recording studios until his death in 1984.
