Who was/is Jesse Stone ? - CDs, Vinyl LPs, DVD and more


Jesse Stone was the arranger who brought a coherent rock'n'roll backbeat to the R&B of the Fifties. He had worked with big bands and recorded for RCA and MGM before moving to Atlantic. There, he accompanied the label's executives on early field trips, introduced King Curtis to session work, and wrote, rehearsed and arranged many classics, often under his real name, Charles Calhoun. They included 'Cole Slaw' (Frank Culley), 'Money Honey' (the Drifters), 'Shake, Rattle And Roll' (Joe Turner) and 'Your Cash Ain't Nothin' But Trash' (the Clovers). Stone's success led to work for other companies, notably Aladdin, Capitol and Epic, where he wrote Roy Hamilton's 'Don't Let Go'.
