RUSS GARCIA picture
West Coast jazz arranger and composer Russ Garcia was born April 12, 1916, in Oakland, CA. A product of San Francisco State University, he later studied composition under Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco before mounting a professional career as an arranger, collaborating with bandleaders Horace Heidt and Al Donahue. After settling in Los Angeles, Garcia worked as a composer and conductor on the Ronald Reagan-hosted radio show This Is America. After the program ended, he tenured for two years as a staff arranger with NBC Radio, followed by a stint teaching at Hollywood's Westlake School of Music, where his students included jazzmen Bill Holman, Bob Graettinger, and Gene Puerling.

Henry Mancini later tapped him to work on The Glenn Miller Story, resulting in a 15-year tenure at Universal Pictures read more...
