I Also Pay  Tribute In Honor Of MR. HERB JEFFRIES Celebrating His 100th Birthday !

 

Herb Jeffries was, in the tradition of Gene Autry and Roy Rogers, a Hollywood created, silver screen, singing cowboy hero.

He starred in five films in the late 1930’s, but Jeffries was a different type of cowpoke. He was “The Bronze Buckaroo.

 

“In those days, my driving force was being a hero to children who didn’t have any heroes to identify with,” Jeffries says.  “I felt that dark-skinned children could identify with me and, in “The Bronze Buckaroo,”  they could have a hero.  Many people don’t realize (to this very day) that in the Old West, one out of every three cowboys was a Black… and there were many Mexican cowboys, too.”

 

From the time Jeffries was a child he was a cowboy at heart.  He learned to ride horses on his grandfather’s dairy farm in northern Michigan and he spent many afternoons in Detroit movie houses watching screen cowboys Buck Jones and Tom Mix.

 

But Herb Jeffries, like millions of other children of color, never saw any cowboys that looked like him.

Jeffries made it his personal mission to change that after he saw a Jed Buell film called “The Terror in Tiny Town,” made with a cast of little people.

 

“I thought if Buell would produce a movie with “Little People,” then maybe he would make an all-Black picture,” Jeffries said.

 

Jeffries trekked to Buell’s Gower Gulch office and persuaded him to make just such a motion picture, which was distributed, by a Dallas company, to mostly segregated black theaters in the South.  With the success of that first film (“Harlem On The Prairie”), several more were soon to follow.

 

Professor Jules-Rosette, of The University of California at San Diego, says that these films had much deeper implications:  “These films were the first to show blacks as heroes and not servants, they allowed blacks to be themselves in a public outlet.  They could be multidimensional people in the movies, while they lived in an outside world where they had to be subservient.”

 

About a decade after Jeffries retired from the screen and the sun then set on the era of Black cowboy films.

During his movie-making days in the late 30’s, Jeffries met his personal screen hero, Mr. Gene Autry, at a cowboy festival in California.  “He walked over to me and told me he liked my pictures,” Jeffries says. “I was thrilled beyond words to have heard him say that.”

 

In 1939, Jeffries hung up his spurs to sing and tour with Duke Ellington’s Orchestra. He later served in WWII and then went on to live for a decade in France, where he ran a Jazz supper club.  His nightly list of patrons included the likes of Orson Welles, Ali Khan and King Farouk of Egypt.

 

When Herb Jeffries walked into the RCA Victor Studio in Chicago on December 28th, 1940 for a Duke Ellington recording session, he had no idea that his future was predestined.  Ellington had called him in at the last minute to record one song, a tune called “Flamingo” (written by Ted Grouya & Edmund Anderson).  Herb had never sang or even heard the song before, yet he felt such a personal relationship with the lyrics and melody that he recorded it in one take.

 

“Flamingo” did not impress Leonard Joy, the RCA Victor executive at the time.  However, the recording was finally released in June, 1941, and became an immediate radio and juke box hit!  Herb had, by then, left the Ellington band and gone off to do his bit for Uncle Sam in WWII.  But the song catapulted Herb into the highest echelon of popular singers.  His three subsequent recordings of “Flamingo” have sold over 14-million copies… and still counting.

 

“The Duke and I”,  Herb’s most recent CD album, constitutes a reunion of Herb Jeffries and the timeless music of the great Duke Ellington on the 100th birthday year of the world famous composer and band leader.
