Interim Quiz

Found this trivia question.  Any ideas?

Before establishing himself as an icon of Southern California mellow this multi-instrumentalist played with Jerry Butler, Gene Vincent, and Buck Owens to name a few. Who is he and what two groups was he a member of?

  1. My first thought was Jimmy Buffet, but, I think he hangs out around Florida, and, is for the most part a singer, then, I realized who it was – Only thing is I can’t remember his name – I can see him clear as day playing an oboe, or a clarinet, or some kind of wind instrument…… It’ll come to me….. Just wait, you’ll see (hey, it’s not as much fun on this end of a Quiz)……

    WTF is “Southern California Mellow?” Sounds like a particular high grade of cannabis.

  3. I think I’ve got it!!!…. I was fixing a bowl of cereal this morning and it just popped in my head….. Kenny G….. I think that’s his name….. As far as the groups he was in, I would have to do an illegal Internet search, but, since this is an unofficial Quiz, and, there are no prizes that I know of, AND, the most important piece of intel I have is that Jek doesn’t even know the answer!!!!…. Who puts up a Quiz (I guess Guiz in this case), without knowing the bloody answer?…..

    HS, “Southern California Mellow” is drippy, syrup-e, elevator music or Pee in the Sand (Mellow Yellow), or Pot……

  4. Just some names of performers from the R&B 1961 top 40.
    Jerry Butler was #1
    Chubby Checker
    Ray Charles
    Ernie K-Doe
    Ben E. King
    Bobby Lewis
    So I was just thanking one of them may be the one.

  5. Sorry MR, but I’m pretty sure it is not Kenny G. If you read his Wikipedia entry, he hasn’t played with any of the people mentioned. Furthermore, it is not apparent that he’s been a member of any group.

    BTW, he is from Seattle and went to UW.

    Soo MR, what vision led you to Kenny G. Maybe it is someone else?

  6. Robo: No points for guessing, since MR is correct, and I do not know the answer. The good news is I can find out in a few days.

    Please help.

  7. Ok I have done some intensive research and I can say with a Great deal of certinty that I DON’T HAVE A F,IN CLUE!
    I can come up with several possible artists but cannot tie the three clue artists together.
    Duane Eddy
    Glen Cambell
    Glen Frey
    Jackson Browne
    Don Rich
    To name a few. I hope your happy Jek You have managed to stump all the musicians.

  8. Yo, I got the answer. No points.

    Jimmy Seals
    Seals & Crofts and The Champs

    Feel better now JJ?

  9. I Don’t think I would’ve gotten that in a million years…… Never much of a Seals and Crofts fan, although, I may have one of their albums – as in LP – Vinyl – 33 1/3 rpm – Long ago……
