A Day at the Grammy Museum with Nikki Hornsby and CJP-NH Records Staff
Nikki Hornsby Founder & CEO of CJP-NHRecords and staff members had a private showing on Nov. 13, 2012 at the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles in honor of her grandfather Dan Hornsby whose musical legacy was displayed in the brand new exhibit 360 Sounds: The Columbia Records Story. This exhibit retelling 125 years of Columbia Records history will be displayed for a whole year.
The GRAMMY Museum itself is awesome!!! It is not a “Museum” per se, but more of an exciting interactive forum for music makers & music lovers & families! (located right across from the Staple Center where the 55th Grammy Awards TV Show takes place in Feb. 2013!)
This was a long-awaited day for Nikky Hornsby who donated to the GRAMMY Museum some of her family memorabilia and her grandfather’s Dan Hornsby’s Columbia Records recordings. We were very honored to be her guests and to hear firsthand about the musical greats as we relived through her eyes and lips the great Columbia Records era.
Nikki Horsnby was delighted and very moved to finally see her grandpa’s Dan Hornsby’s music proudly displayed at the GRAMMY Museum’s special interactive exhibit: 360 Sounds: The Columbia Records Story as she graciously and humbly shared her grandfather’s Dan Hornsby’s musical legacy with CJP-NHRECORDS staff and friends.
Many grateful thanks to Bob Santelli, Executive Director at the GRAMMY Museum and the young talented curators at the GRAMMY Museum who made this guided visit even more special. Thank you Nikki Hornsby and the GRAMMY Museum for this musically rich experience and for sharing this very special day down memory lane of the glorious Columbia years with us!
Along with Dan Hornsby‘s Columbia Records there were many other memorabilia donated by his grand-daughter Nikki Hornsby such as posters from the 30s from Nikki’s inherited collection. Some of the artifacts include records from family friend Jimmy Van Heusen & Frank Sinatra in 78s. Also donated were rare Bessie Smith and many Harry James Columbia Recordings along with out takes from Bing Crosby and more.
With the opening of the exhibit 360 Sounds : The Columbia Records Story at the GRAMMY Museum this last November, Dan Hornsby and his lifetime work in the music recording business was honored at that time among other great artists of this era and mentioned in the masterpiece book of the same name “360 Sounds: The Columbia Records Story” written by Written by Pulitzer Prize and Grammy nominated author and historian, Sean Wilentz.
Dan Hornsby, born Isaac Daniel Hornsby in Atlanta, Georgia on February 1rst,1900 – May 18th 1951 was an American singer, musician, music writer, producer and arranger. He enjoyed playing trumpet and singing with various dance bands in Atlanta in the 1920s. Hornsby formed his basic group Dan Hornsby Quartet: Perry Bechtel (banjo, guitar and baritone), Taylor Flanagan (piano and high tenor), Sterlin Melvin (guitar and bass guitar) and Dan Hornsby (lead singer and arranger).
The Atlanta Baking Company asked Hornsby to do a show on WSM Radio in Atlanta. The group name changed to Bamby Baker Boys and Hornsby became the first commercial performer of the WSB radio station, which started airing in 1922. His pleasant disposition and sense of humour earned him a nickname “Cheerful Dan”.
Hornsby’s performance on radio was noticed by Columbia Records – the oldest record company. His main role was a sort of talent scout, but he had many roles at Columbia Records during the 1920s and early 1930s, including production of his own recordings like “On Mobile Bay” and “I Want A Girl” or with Young Brothers Tennessee Band: “Are you from Dixie” and “Bill Bailey, won’t you please come home”, “Oh! Susanna“, “Little Brown Jug“, and other classic American songs. For example, Hornsby was the first recorded voice of the “Arkansas Traveler” and was the producer of the first recording of “You Are My Sunshine” and “Take me out to the Ballgame!
Nikki Hornsby who has no children to pass on these inherited treasures from her parents & Grandparents and her own thousands of original songs is very grateful that these works have found a home in the respected GRAMMY Museum! A good place to start to share her Grandfather’s work with the world!
