Biography

Active: 1950s-2000s
Country Of origin: Austria

An excellent Dixieland trumpeter and an occasional swing guitarist, Oscar Klein (although not well known in the U.S.) had a long and productive career in Germany. Klein was an important member of Fatty George's band (1952-1957), the Tremble Kids (1957-1960), and the Dutch Swing College Orchestra (1959-1963). Back with the Tremble Kids off and on during 1963-1977, Klein also had the opportunity to play with American musicians passing through Europe, including Albert Nicholas and Wild Bill Davison. Virtually all of his recordings have been made for European labels; most are worth searching for. ~ Scott Yanow~ Rovi
