Trumpeter and vocalist Calvin Boze cut over 30 sides for Aladdin between 1949 and 1952. His singing voice bore a remarkable similarity to that of Louis Jordan and much of the material he recorded was also very similar to that recorded by Jordan in the mid to late 1940s. So the sides presented in this late 1980s album on the Moonshine label are lively and raucous jump blues steeped in a party atmosphere usually very similar to Jordan’s major hit “Saturday Night Fish Fry”. There’s plenty of booting tenor sax solos courtesy of Maxwell Davis.

The album was mastered from vintage 78 rpm discs so there is plenty of surface noise on some sides. Joan K has come through yet again with some label scans, of both 78 rpm and 45 rpm versions of Calvin’s biggest hit “Safronia B”. There is also a scan of a rare deejay white label promo. Thanks Joan! ---bebopwinorip.blogspot.com

 

Remembered as being a senior - and the school bandleader - by Charles Brown at Prairie View College in Texas, trumpeter Boze (or Boaz, as his name appears earlier) first came to the public's attention on recordings with the west coast bands of Russell Jacquet (Globe) and Marvin Johnson (G&G).

In 1949, he began recording as a vocalist in a strong Louis Jordan vein for Aladdin Records with Maxwell Davis and his band.

Although he never made a huge impression on the R&B charts, his recordings were all solid, earthy R&B jive. He is best known for "Safronia B" and the b-side - Boze's celebration of his adopted home - "Angel City Blues", as well as a couple of songs he wrote for old homeboy Charles Brown - "Texas Blues" and "Hot Lips And Seven Kisses" - also recorded for Aladdin. ---reverendfrost.blogspot.com

Calvin Boze & His All Stars - Primary Artist 

 

Remembered as being a senior - and the school band leader - by Charles Brown at Prairie View College in Texas, trumpeter Boze (or Boaz, as his name appears earlier) first came to the public’s attention on recordings with the west coast bands of Russell Jacquet (Globe) and Marvin Johnson (G&G). In 1949, he began recording as a vocalist in a strong Louis Jordan vein for Aladdin Records with Maxwell Davis and his band. Although he never made a huge impression on the R&B charts, his recordings were all solid, earthy R&B jive, advocating ‘Working With My Baby’ (who made his lolly pop, and his peanut brittle), and ‘Waiting And Drinking’. He is best known for ‘Safronia B’ and the b-side - Boze’s celebration of his adopted home - ‘Angel City Blues’, as well as a couple of songs he wrote for old homeboy Charles Brown - ‘Texas Blues’ and ‘Hot Lips And Seven Kisses’ - also recorded for Aladdin. ---allmusic.com

 

Born in Trinity County, Texas, Boze began playing in a high school band, which also featured Illinois Jacquet, Arnett Cobb, and singer Charles Brown. He went on to play in the bands of Marvin Johnson and then Milton Larkins, again with Jacquet and also Eddie Vinson.

After wartime service he settled in Los Angeles and, as singer and trumpet player, took part in the development of the jump blues style, heavily influenced by Louis Jordan. Boze first recorded in 1945, but his biggest successes came with Aladdin Records after 1949. In May 1950 he released "Safronia B", a classic if unsophisticated recording which, with its refrain of "I surrender! I surrender!", epitomised the sense of fun in the West Coast music scene just before the dawn of rock and roll. It made #9 on the Billboard R&B chart in June 1950, and has since been included on several anthologies of the period. The song was later recorded by The Manhattan Transfer.

He toured widely around this time, particularly with Dinah Washington. However, his later recordings, including "Looped" and an early version of "Lawdy Miss Clawdy", were less successful, and he did not record after 1952. He continued to play at jam sessions around Los Angeles, while also developing a career as a social worker and school teacher, before his death, aged 53, after prolonged ill health.

He died in Los Angeles, California in June 1970. ---wbssmedia.com
