Ollie Mitchell

Oliver E. Mitchell was born April 8, 1927. His father, Harold (Pappy) Mitchell played first trumpet in the Jazz Singer, (the first sound movie) all the old Republic westerns, the original King Kong, Gone with the Wind, and all of the MGM musicals until he retired in 1948. Harold started his son Ollie on the trumpet at age five to prove some of his trumpistic theories. Ollie survived, and because of the strict training his dad put him through, he had all the skills needed to be one of the top recording trumpet players in the ‘60’s and ‘70’s.
