"PASSING NOTES"

A Brief Biography of

LEON EDWARD STEPHEN YOUNG

Arranger & Conductor (1916-1991)

by his son MALCOLM HARVEY YOUNG

Leon Young was born on 21 April 1916, the son of Leon and Ethel Young. Named Leon after his father, he is especially treasured, particularly as his younger brother, Raymond, was soon to die in infancy.

Not merely a triple threat, Victor Young was known as a violinist, arranger, film composer, songwriter, conductor and record producer. This wide experience in all forms of music, from his first hit song,Sweet Sue, Just You in 1928 to his tremendous score for "Around the World in 80 Days" in 1956, was exceptional even by Tin Pan Alley and Hollywood standards, all the more so because his international reputation was achieved in such a short lifetime.

This Index, covering the years 1992-2006, together with its predecessor for 1956-1991 constitutes a finding guide to the contents of the 'Journal into Melody' over its half-century of existence.

As no reader can possibly remember where to find a particular or specific article in the past fifty years, consultation of the two Indexes enables one to pinpoint exactly when the article was published. Even if the author's name cannot be remembered, the article can be found under its subject.

Method of Compilation

This is an index of authors and subjects. An example or two will illustrate its correct usage:

Submit to Facebook

ADDINSELL, Richard. Appreciation. 84: Sep 1986, 15.

This entry signifies that the composer Richard Addinsell was the subject of an
appreciative article in Issue No 84 of September 1986 on page 15.

ADES, David. Thoughts on Robert Farnon. 37: Dec 1972, 21.

This entry denotes that David Ades was the author of an article about Robert Farnon in Issue No 37 of December 1972 on page 21. It can also be found in the Index under Farnon, Robert.
The arrangement of entries under each heading is primarily chronological with some exceptions. The Index is neither exhaustive nor comprehensive. Contributions in lighter vein (e.g 'Jumping Bean', the crossword puzzles and the quizzes) were excluded.

The Society's Proud Record and its Journal

The Index confirms that the 'Journal into Melody' has been an excellent mirror of world-wide musical activity during the past fifty years. The Journal stands to the credit of the Robert Farnon Society which has consistently maintained its momentum and publishing record without a break since 1956. The trend continues to augur well for the future.

The Journal has been the mainstay of the Robert Farnon Society throughout these years. For members of the Society living further afield than Britain, the Journal has served as the principal link with the Robert Farnon Society. Above all, however, the 'Journal into Melody' provides a portrait of a truly great musician, Robert Farnon. There are a great many references to articles about him in the two Indexes, more than enough information to fill the pages of a large book.
The Robert Farnon Society was formed to honour Robert Farnon. Perusal of this Index confirms that the Society has succeeded in fulfilling this function with distinction.

Acknowledgements

Naomi Musiker excelled herself with her editing and immaculate typing of an often illegible and indecipherable handwriting. The latter certainly does not improve with the compiler's advancing years!
