Paul Weeden


Paul Weeden
Instrument: guitar
Description: "Weeden loved a recording made by the Count Basie Orchestra called Splanky and would have us play it twice a night. Frank Foster told me that following the death of Basie's guitarist, Freddy Green, when Frank became the conductor of the orchestra, he put on a search for Paul Weeden. Thanks to tenor saxophonist Jessie Wilks, he was able to locate Paul in Norway."
