The company put a wage

Collins. He said his main con-

'All we want is to do the con-

The talks ended last month

Artie Shaw, 94
MUSICIAN
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -
Artie Shaw, the clarinetist and
bandleader whose recording of
"Begin the Beguine" epito-
mized the Big Band era, died
Thursday. He was 94.
Shaw had been in declining
health and apparently died of
natural causes, his attorney
and longtime friend Eddie
Ezor said.
At his peak in the 1930s and
'40s, Shaw pulled in a five-fig-
ure. salary per week and
ranked with Benny Goodman,
Tommy Dorsey and Glenn
Miller as the bandleaders who
made music swing.
But he left the music world
largely behind in the mid-'50s
and spent much of the second
half of his life devoted to writ-
ing and other pursuits.
His band's recording of Cole
Porter's "Begin the Beguine"
was intended to be the "B" side
of the record.
Instead, it became a huge hit,
topping the charts for six
weeks in 1938 and making
Shaw famous at age 28.
Among his other hits, some
with his big band and some
with his quartet, the Gramercy
Five: "Frenesi," "Dancing in
the Dark," "Nightmare," "Back
Bay Shuffle," "Accent-tchu-ate
the Positive" and "Traffic
Jam."
He worked with such jazz
legends as Buddy Rich, Mel
Torme, Gordon Jenkins and, at
a time when most white band-
leaders refused to hire blacks,
Billie Holiday.
Another famous roster: his
wives. They included actresses
Lana Turner (wife No. 3, 1940),
Ava Gardner (No. 5, 1945).,
Evelyn Keyes (No. 8, 1957), and
novelist Kathleen Winsor,
author of the 1944 best-seller
"Forever Amber."
