Dave Bartholomew

Dave Bartholomew (born 24 December 1920, Edgard, Louisiana, United States of America) is a musician, band leader, composer, and arranger, prominent in the music of New Orleans throughout the second half of the 20th century.

Overview

Bartholomew has been active in many musical genres, including rhythm & blues, big band, swing music, rock and roll, New Orleans jazz, Dixieland. Although many artists have recorded Bartholomew's songs, his partnership with Fats Domino produced some of his greatest successes. In the mid 1950s they wrote more than 40 hit songs for their record label, Imperial Records, including two songs that reached Number One on the Billboard rhythm and blues charts "Goin' Home" and "Ain't That a Shame". He is a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Career

He first learned to play the tuba but the trumpet later became his main instrument. His professional career began in New Orleans, when he put together a group that included Alvin 'Red' Tyler, Earl Palmer and Lee Allen.

He began recording in 1947 for Deluxe Records, but the company folded and he received little recognition. In 1949, however, he began working with Lew Chudd's Imperial Records as an arranger, bandleader and talent scout. He produced hits from Earl King, Tommy Ridgley, Robert Parker, Frankie Ford, Chris Kenner, Smiley Lewis, Shirley & Lee and Fats Domino, among others. He was responsible for the arrangements on the Fats Domino hits in the fifties including the best seller "Blueberry Hill". He left Imperial in the mid-1960s and moved between several labels, including his own Broadmoor Records (named for his neighborhood of New Orleans, Broadmoor).

As of 2004 he is still involved in the music business and releasing recordings of his own. He also plays traditional jazz trumpet at Preservation Hall, despite his millionaire status.

Legacy

Bartholomew helped develop and define the New Orleans sound which was so influential in the 1950s. He was key in the transition from jump blues and big-band swing to rhythm and blues and rock and roll.

Bartholomew and Domino co-wrote many songs that were hits, including "Ain't That a Shame", "I'm in Love Again" "Blue Monday" and "I'm Walkin'".

His "I Hear You Knocking" was a hit for Gale Storm in the 50's, and Dave Edmunds in the 70's; "One Night" and "Witchcraft" were both hits for Elvis Presley. Pat Boone's cover of "Ain’t That a Shame," and Rick Nelson's version of "I'm Walkin'" were top twenty hits in the late '50s and early '60s. Chuck Berry's only #1 Hot 100 hit was a cover of Bartholomew's "My Ding-a-Ling", although Berry substantially changed the arrangement and verses.

Bartholomew produced a series of memorable hits such as "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" with Lloyd Price; and "I Hear You Knocking" and "One Night" with Smiley Lewis; plus "Let the Good Times Roll" with Shirley & Lee.

In 1991 Bartholomew was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
