He wasn’t in a class with Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw and some of the other great ones, but he was still one we really liked. Brown was still touring a lot until recently, and he was really touring back in the ‘40s and ‘50s. I don’t know how many times my wife and I went to a dance hall where Brown was performing. We’d hear all the familiar standards, and then everybody would cluster around the band stand to hear “Butch” Stone give us “A Good Man Is Hard to Find.” “Now if I’m going back there’ll be just one but, keep a smile on your face and keep your big mouth shut.”
