Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All-Stars

Although a good enough bassist to play with Stan Kenton's big band, Howard Rumsey's main importance was as the organizer of the Lighthouse All-Stars and manager of the Lighthouse. Originally a drummer, Rumsey switched to bass while at college. He played with Vido Musso in the late '30s, and when Stan Kenton formed his first band in 1941, Rumsey became its bassist. A year later he started freelancing in the Los Angeles area. In 1949 Rumsey brought jazz into the Lighthouse in Hermosa Beach, CA. Within a few years the jam sessions featured some of the top jazz-oriented studio players in the area and the bassist was heading "the Lighthouse All-Stars," which recorded frequently for Contemporary in the 1950s, starring such players as Shorty Rogers, Jimmy Giuffre, Bob Cooper, Bud Shank, and Bill Perkins. In the 1960s, Rumsey quit playing to devote full-time to running the Lighthouse and, after he sold the establishment, for a time he ran the nearby club Concerts by the Sea. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

Raised in NY and migrated to Cali in the late 60's--I also haunted the Lighthouse-- a n d loved East and West coast jazz equally. Also caught sets at "Concerts." Thanks for the great jazz and memories Howard. God bless.
Howard Rumsey, still with us and doing well for 92 appears in a DVD that is out Jazz On The West Coast The Story Of The Lighthouse, not enough can be said about this kind and gracious Gentleman of Jazz who has said that Stan Kenton was the Father of us All (Kenton Alumni). I have told him before as is his humbleness, downplaying his role in the importance of Jazz, particularly what is known as West Coast Jazz that he is the Uncle of Us All then!! (Jazz Musicians). Many of these greats are very k
I haunted the Lighthouse back in the late 60'. Redondo Beach was home to some of the original beat kids...I wasn't one. I had recently left the San Diego P. D. to take a better paying job in the aerospace industry and was commuting weekly between L. A. and home. The Lighthouse was for a time my home away from home. Howard featured name groups on the weekends and had his group and intermission tapes there for the regulars. Note: I've run out of space, but there is more. Write If you'd like
