Biography

 
 
Born Arthur James Singleton in Bunkie, Louisiana, Zutty Singleton started drumming as a professional with Steve Lewis at the Rosebud Theater as a teenager. He was called to serve in the United States Navy during World War I and returned to New Orleans following his discharge. There, he performed with Papa Celestin, Big Eye Louis Nelson, John Robichaux, and Fate Marable.

In 1929, Zutty Singleton backed Louis Armstrong with Carroll Dickerson's band. Branching out, Zutty moved to New York City where he played with Alonzo Ross, Vernon Andrade, Fats Waller, Bubbly Miley, and Otto Hardwick. Having gained a fair measure of notoriety as a drummer, Zutty Singleton assembled his own band which regularly graced the Lafayette Theatre.

Zutty Singleton moved to the West Coast in 1943 and joined the house band at Billy Berg's club in Los Angeles. Zutty Singleton played with Paul Howard, T-Bone Walker, and Teddy Bunn during this time. He also appeared in the film Stormy Weather and on Orson Welles' radio show. Soon, however, he was back leading his own band, and they performed in local clubs. Before leaving the West Coast, Zutty played with Slim Gaillard, Wingy Manone, Eddie Condon, Joe Marsala, and Nappy Lamare.

Zutty Singleton moved back to New York City and led his band in performances at Stuyvesant Casino, Central Plaza, and the Metropole during the late 1950s. During most of the 1960s, Zutty accompanied Tony Parenti at Jimmy Ryan's bar in New York.

After suffering from a stroke in 1970, Zutty was forced into retirement. He passed away in 1975.

Zutty is known by and large as one of the most influential drumming figures in early American jazz, particularly for his incorporation of drum solos, brushes, and some of the best displays of technique the world has ever seen.
