Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Floyd Freeman Graham (aka 'Fessor) (b. Oct 15, 1902 - d. Aug. 18, 1974, Denton, TX) was a US collegiate bandleader and music educator who founded and directed the Aces of Collegeland in 1927, the university dance band, pit orchestra and stage band of the University of North Texas College of Music. He also was a violinist. The Aces of Collegeland was the forerunner to the One O'Clock Lab Band. Graham laid the groundwork at North Texas for what became the first degree in jazz studies offered by a major academic university. Many of his band members and Saturday night participants became a "who's who" in the performing arts - as members of famous big bands, film, and singers.show more
