Bob Wilber's roots can be traced in Scarsdale, New York. During his early teen years, Bob Wilber started to listen to famous swing bands of the 1930s as well as exploring early forms of jazz. He was the musical director of the 1966 concert of the Duke Ellington Jazz Society at New York's Barbizon Plaza Theater. It was well-received by the public and guests. Performances include revived samples of Ellingtonia, the small band pieces in the 1930s under some of the orchestra's famous soloists, such as Johnny Hodges. Wilber came to the jazz scene when he became a pupil of soprano saxophonist Sidney Bechet.

Keywords:   Sidney Bechet, Ellingtonia, Bob Wilber, Scarsdale, Duke Ellington Jazz Society, Johnny Hodges
