  1. Hello, I am the Executor of my grandfather’s estate, John Kirby Jazz Foundation – 2006 via Sony Music Entertainment (vendor number, etc., are available upon request). He was bassist and bandleader of the John Kirby Sextet. He died in Los Angeles in 1952. He recorded for Victor, Decca , Columbia and others from 1938 – 1946. He became respected sideman in the 1930s with the Fletcher Henderson Orchestra, Chick Webb’s Orchestra, The Teddy Wilson / Billy Holiday Orchestra, Maxine Sullivan, Lucky Millinder, Coleman Hawkins and Ella Fitzgerald – before establishing his own orchestra in 1938 (Song of the year “Loch Lomond”). His orchestra became the first jazz band the have his own sponsored radio program on CBS called “Flow Gently Sweet Rhythm” in 1940. I am 65 (getting old) and I need some direction to determine if all of Kirby’s royalties are accounted for (from 1937 to present). His daughter, Yvonne, died in 1999. Thanks for any path you can put me on to find some answers. The help desk at Sony is not working.
