The Ed Bogas Interview….

bogas1

 
Once there was a band called the Blue Velvets. Saul Zantz didn't like the name and made them change it. They eventually settled on Creedence Clearwater and the Fantasy label hit gold. Ed Bogas was hired soon there after and became one of the lead producer and arrangers for all the jazz cats under contract. The funny thing was that he knew next to nothing about jazz. He attributes much of his success to Cal Tjader who had recently resigned with the label. Cal led him by the hand and eventually they sang lines back to each other. A true baptism by fire and some great stories.....

Last Bolero in Berkeley,
