Arthur "Zutty" Singleton
(1898 - 1975)

Zutty Singleton was one of the most influential drummers of early Jazz. He popularized the use
of brushes and drum solos in Jazz and had some of the best technique of the era. Zutty's got his
start at the Rosebud Theater in New Orleans with Steve Lewis in 1915. During World War I
he went to Europe to fight and was wounded. Zutty played in several bands in New Orleans
after the war, including with Papa Celestin, Luis Russell, and with Fate Marable on the
riverboats.

He moved up to St. Louis to play with Charlie Creath and married his sister Marge.
He moved back to New Orleans for a year and then moved to Chicago where he worked with
Doc Cooke and others. While in Chicago, he and Louis Armstrong and Earl Hines tried to
open a club, but it was unsuccessful. Zutty played on several of the Louis Armstrong and his
Hot Five sides, including "A Monday Date", where Armstrong says, "Come on Zutty, whip
those cymbals Pops!".

In 1931 he moved to New York City to play with Fats Waller. Throughout the Depression
Singleton managed to keep working, often in traveling vaudville shows. In 1933 he moved
back to Chicago and joined Carroll Dickerson at the Grand Terrace (3955 South Parkway).
Throughout the rest of the Thirties he played with a number of bands, including ones lead by
Roy Eldridge, Mezz Mezzrow, and Sidney Bechet. In 1941 he moved to Los Angeles and lead
or played in a series of bands there. He continued to play up until he retired in 1970 after
suffering from a stroke.
