Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ernesto "Ernie" Caceres (Nov. 22, 1911 - Jan. 10, 1971) was an American jazz musician born in Rockport, Texas. Caceres's brothers were both musicians; Emilio was a norte o violinist and Pinero was a trumpeter and pianist. Caceres himself played clarinet, guitar, alto and baritone saxophone, and first played professionally in 1928 in local Texas ensembles. He and Emilio moved to Detroit and then New York, taking work as session musicians where they could. In 1938 Caceres became a member of Bobby Hackett's band, and thereafter became a highly sought sideman, playing with Jack Teagarden in 1939 and then in Glenn Miller's orchestra from February 1940 to September 1942. While with Miller, he made an appearance in the films Sun Valley Serenade (1941) and Orchestra Wives (1942). Time with Benny Goodman, Woody Herman, and Tommy Dorsey followed later in the 1940s.
