By Carolyn Ristuccia Illustrated by Robert Lachman Valley's studio jazz Band Ensemble, led by Dick Carlson and Don Nelligan, far surpasses the ordi- nary. Hearing them makes me think of my mother and father "Lindy-hopping" their way around the Roseland dance floor. I know who Wayne King, Kay Starr, Lou Marcella, and Shep Fields are. My father, a relic of those days, made sure I knew, whether I liked it or not. He simply couldn't tolerate a "cul- tural ignoramus" for a daughter. "This is good music," he would bellow, putting on a scratchy 78 that he had bought some 20 years before. Entranced, my father would stand before the record player, cocking his ear and tapping his foot. He was really the RCA Victrola dog in disguise. But, as I get older, his collection, like my love of jazz, continues to blossom. Everyone from Benny Goodman to Oscar Levant has taken up permanent residence inside our beat-up record cabinet, and I am fully indoctrinated. , Evidently, other people share my fascination. They appreciate the old sounds enough so that during a Valley jazz Band performance, Monarch Hall swells to nostalgic capacity. Under Carlson's direction, the best memories of the big band era are rekindled. A wave of sentimen- tal slobbism settles over an excited audience that waits for their share of the shrouded past to come floating down to them. Guy Lombardo couldn't do any better. Their timing, like their talent, is perfect- ly atuned. From the back row of the wind section rises a female trumpet player who delivers a solo of "Wa- bash Bluesf' Tall, graceful, and commanding, she is a majestic reminder of the changing times. As she draws the piece to a hypnotic close, the audience obliges her with an appreciative round of applause. With trumpet in hand, she is the feminine answer to the Louie Armstrongs of this world. Her name is Stacy Rowles, a pretty brass musi- cian, whose foremost ambition in life is to attain musical excellence as an upcoming jazz performer. At 18, although her public career is barely five years off the ground, Miss Rowles has already received a string of honors usually reserved for the seasoned veteran. While she was still in high school, her painstaking efforts jelled into an offer to per- form a solo before 5,000 people in the 1973 Mon- terey jazz Pop Festival. "I told myself that if I thought about that sea of faces out there, I'd blow it," Miss Rowles recalled with the smile of a cultivated perfectionist. "I knew what was expected of me," she explained, "but I told myself that I had to like what I was doing before I could please anyone else." Thanks to a standing ovation, Stacy began to enjoy the directed confidence that propelled her into winning the T973 Flugel Horn competition at Orange Coast College, entrance to the prestigious Stan Kenton jazz Clinic and the T973 title of "Most Outstanding jazz Musician" from Burbank High School. Although Stacy was active in the music education programs offered at school, her training began with- out the regimented complications that turn many children off to learning an instrument. Chuckling, she recalls that "except for a few piano lessons when
