Georgie Auld

Georgie Auld (May 19, 1919 – January 8, 1990) was a jazz tenor saxophonist, clarinetist, and bandleader.

Auld was born John Altwerger in Toronto, Canada, and moved to Brooklyn, New York, in 1929.[3] Before the family left Canada, Auld's parents gave him a saxophone, which he taught himself to play.

Auld was most noteworthy for his work with Bunny Berigan, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Erroll Garner, Dizzy Gillespie, Al Porcino, Billy Eckstine, Tiny Kahn, Frank Rosolino, and many others. Primarily a swing saxophonist, he did many big band stints in his career, and led several big bands, including Georgie Auld and His Orchestra and Georgie Auld and His Hollywood All Stars.
