Oscar Marcelo Aleman, singer, dancer, entertainer, and guitarist extraordinaire, was born in Northern Argentina on February 20, 1909. At the age of six, he was dancing and singing with his family's folk ensemble, the Moreria Sextet. By the age of ten, after his mother had died and father had comitted suicide, he found himself an orphan working sporadically as a dancer and musician on the streets of Santos........ In the 1930's, having discovered American Jazz via Eddy Lang and Joe Venuti, Oscar moved to Paris where he was immediately hired by Josephine Baker to lead her band, the Baker Boys at the Cafe de Paris. This provided him an incredible opportunity to play regularly with American Jazz musicians who would come to see Josephine and sit in with her band....... In 1939, jazz critic Leonard Feather visited Paris. He returned to America raving about his new "discovery" and stated, "Aleman has more swing than any other guitarist on the continent.".... 1.
