Santa Barbara, Calif. (UPI) - Jean Goldkette, 62, once a top bandleader and discoverer of several top jazz greats throughout the twenties to the forties, died Saturday of an apparent heart attack.
Goldkette, according to his business manager, James Arthur Morgan, discovered such prominent band figures as Tommy Dorsey, Glen [sic] Miller, Artie Shaw and Glenn Gray.
Goldkette and Morgan were together at the Carrillo Hotel here when the one-time bandleader and pianist was stricken. He later died at County Hospital.
