The Purpose Of Jimmie Lunceford Jamboree Festival:

To Honor And Bring Awareness To The Forgotten And Impressive Legacy And Achievements Of Jimmie Lunceford, The First High School Band Orchestra Leader/Conductor In The History Of The Memphis City Schools…Lunceford, A Fisk University Graduate, Was Hired As A Teacher Of English,Spanish And Physical Education At Manassas High School Back In The 1920s...He Also Served As The School's Baseball And Football Coach...He Started The First Memphis City Schools' Band/Orchestra With Money Out Of His Own Pocket And Donations From The Community...

He Later Took His Band Of High School Students And Turned Them Into A Professional And Popular Local Memphis Band Known As The Chickasaw Syncopators…

In the early 1930s Lunceford took his band to the legendary Cotton Club in Harlem, NY to take over as the house band for Duke Ellington and Cab Calloway…The group eventually became known as The Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra…The Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra would regularly broadcast live from the Cotton Club gaining a huge national audience…Jimmie Lunceford would constantly beat the great swing bands of his era in numerous “battle of the bands” contests including those led by Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman and Chick Webb…The Lunceford Orchestra Was Known For Their Amazing Ensemble Play, Singing , Choreography And Overall Showmanship...They were known as The Harlem Express because of their huge African American following and was the top draw act at the world famous Apollo Theatre for 10 years...The Lunceford Orchestra was considered by many including Glenn Miller and Miles Davis to be one of if not the best swing band ever!!!

Unfortunately, Jimmie Lunceford (after dying under mysterious circumstances on July 12, 1947 in Seaside, Oregon) has been forgotten by many in the Memphis Community for 61 years and counting…

Jimmie Lunceford, the essence of a true teacher, never forgot about Memphis or Manassas High School and would constantly come back to talk to students at Manassas High School and hold free concerts despite being one of the most popular bandleaders in the country, Black or White…

The purpose of this event is to bring awareness about Jimmie Lunceford and to instill community pride in the achievements and accomplishments of a native Memphian who never forgot Memphis…Jimmie Lunceford’s remains are interred at the famous Elmwood Cemetery along with his wonderful legacy...We @ the Jimmie Lunceford Jamboree Festival look forward to changing that same old sad song & swinging a new brighter tune!!!

Please Continue Reading To Find Out Why…

2012 Is Not The Ending, It’s Just The Beginning!  

Please enjoy these recent tv documentaries that were produced by W.E. A.L.L. B.E. TV that exposes the true genius and staying power of the Jimmie Lunceford Legacy. The  Jimmie Lunceford Jamboree Festival (JLJF) will be honoring this unsung genius and the first self-proclaimed high school band director in Memphis City Schools History in a one year celebration in “The City Of Good Abode” starting in 2012 which will mark the 110th Anniversary of his birth and 65 years since his untimely passing.


We will have art exhibits, symposiums, workshops, parties, plays, battle of the bands and music concerts among many other things to give this man the greatest tribute from the city that helped manifest his show biz dream of an exceptional swing band composed of his best high school students and college buddies and a city he loved so much that he saw fit to be buried in it. We are also in the process of creating a scholarship fund for deserving students who are interested in continuing the living legacy of Jimmie Lunceford through pursuing excellence in music and music education… Please feel free to join us in raising the funds, awareness and enthusiasm for this amazing man and his timeless achievements.

Right now the City of Memphis is in dire need of an image makeover and what better way to give the city a facelift and self esteem boost than by giving it a truth serum of its own powerful and majestic history?

Our goal @ The JLJF is to make every single Memphian proud of our city’s heritage and true place in music history by encouraging music education and development for every school aged child at every school in the city. We also want to reestablish Memphis rightful place as a jazz mecca on par with other celebrated music cities such as New Orleans, Chicago and New York.

The JLJF represents a viable opportunity to build both true education and economic sustainability in a city that is not only the commercial hub of the nation but also arguably represents the cultural epicenter of the nation’s cultural heritage. What other city can lay claim to the following:

1.)    Giving birth to the modern phenomenon known as the supermarket (Clarence Saunders’ Piggly Wiggly opened @ 79 Jefferson in Memphis in 1916).
 
2.)    Tennessee Williams, one of the greatest  America playwrights, premiered his first play "Cairo, Shanghai, Bombay!" in the Bluff City @ The Garden Players community theater in 1935. Regarding this production, Williams wrote, "The laughter ... enchanted me. Then and there the theatre and I found each other for better and for worse. I know it's the only thing that saved my life."
3.)     20th Century Literary Giant Richard Wright spent his childhood in North Memphis in New Chicago.
4.)    A man named Elvis who also lived in North Memphis made his music debut @ Sun Records and eventually had the world all shook up.
5.)    The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, made her stage entry into the world she would rule with soul in South Memphis….


6.)    The first All-Black cast and Oscar nominated Hollywood movie, “Hallelujah!”, was filmed not far from what is now present day LeMoyne Owen College.

7.) Louis Lettes, a Beale Street tailor, is credited with the creation of the zoot suit.

"Jimmie Lunceford Has The Best Of All Bands. Duke [Ellington] Is Great, [Count] Basie Is Remarkable, But Lunceford Tops Them Both."
-- Legendary Swing Band Leader Glenn Miller

"Jimmy Lunceford Was Buried Here In Memphis. The Spot He Occupies Should Have Something Of A Special Significance. ...He Took A Group Of Relatively Unsophisticated Memphis Colored Boys And Welded Them Into An Organization Which Scaled The Heights Of Musical Eminence. ... He Presented Something New In The Way Of Musical Presentations By Negro Orchestras."
--Legendary Memphis Educator And Syndicated Columnist Nat D. Williams

Although in recent days he was finally awarded a long overdue brass note on the street (Beale Street) that he helped made famous, the tantalizing question still remains for many in the City of Good Abode: Who Was Jimmie Lunceford???

In less than 30 minutes R2C2H2 Tha Artivist plans to answer that exact question with analysis from experts and the people who knew him the best.

“W.E. A.L.L. B.E. News Presents…Real Talk With Tha Artivist” takes great pride and honor in honoring a true gentleman whose creative genius and legacy knows no boundaries...James “Jimmie” Melvin Lunceford was considered by many to be among jazz's greatest swing band leaders...His Orchestra was nicknamed 'The Harlem Express' because of their overwhelming popularity with the African American community of the 1930s & 40s...His fame also extended beyond that proud community for he was also recognized by the larger national and international audiences as well...

Leading a band composed of his former high school students from the future Jazz Mecca Manassas High School (where he became the Memphis City Schools' first high school band director , amazingly starting a world class band with little start up money or any support from the school system) and his college buddies from Fisk University, The Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra eventually became the house band for the legendary Cotton Club in storied Harlem, NY...The band became wildly famous because of their exceptional stage shows and the weekly live radio broadcasts from the club that were heard throughout the entire U.S....

Please join us in learning more about a man who owned and flew his own airplanes at a time when Blacks were not allowed to attend flight schools in the U.S....Learn more about a man who never forgot his teacher roots and would spend generous sums of money to start and support music education programs throughout the country to fight juvenile delinquency and dropout rates...Learn more about the former star athlete and ambitious teacher who became a movie star and a headliner & legend in his own time before dying under mysterious circumstances at the young age of 45 almost 62 years ago...Learn more about the efforts currently being done to restore this man's rightful place in the jazz pantheon and to ensure his legacy of perseverance, creativity, education and hope lives on in our youths and greater community for generations to come...
