Born: December 24, 1920
Dave Bartholomew - trumpet, composer, arranger, producer
New Orleans music man, Dave Bartholomew is one of the truly distinguished figures of the delta music scene, a man with multi talents as a songwriter, producer, bandleader and horn player who spans many eras of popular music genres. Known in many circles for his long and fruitful music and songwriting partnership with another crescent city music personality, Antoine Fats Domino, many of Bartholomew's other claims to musical fame are actually less well known.
The self-proclaimed inventor of the “Big Beat” was born on December 24, 1920 in Edgard, Louisiana. By age 14, Bartholomew had already played with many of the most popular bands of the south, Papa Celestin, Joe Robicheaux and Professor Claiborne Williams, among them. In 1939, he joined the Fats Pichon band aboard the river boat, SS Capitol. Traveling up and down the Mississippi, the band would spend summers in St. Paul, Minnesota and winters at home, in New Orleans....
