Bob Keene

Real Name:
Robert Verril Kuhn
Producer - label owner - Del-Fi Records

Bob Keene was born on January 5th,1922 and raised in Los Angeles.
At the age of five he began to play clarinet. He was mastering it before he was ten years old. At the age of 14 he was guest-starring with the LA Philharmonic. His first big band break helped him to realize his boyhood dream to be a bandleader like his idol Benny Goodman.

Los Angeles jazz entrepreneur Gene Norman was looking for a bandleader to record an album of swing classics for his new label GNP. Keene put together an all-star group of the best session cats available. Studio time was booked at Radio Recorders in Hollywood.

Keene released three other great jazz albums: "Solo For Seven" / "An Afternoon Affair" / "Unforgettable - Love Songs Of The Fifties" before concentrating on other interests.
