Swinging From Start To Finish: Finest & Most Innovative Musician of Jazz

Artie Shaw’s estate contents offered for sale to the public. April 1st through April 10th by Reservation

Los Angeles (March 25, 2005) – Artie Shaw, one of the most innovative and accomplished figures in American music of the twentieth century, passed away in December 2004. The doors of his residence will open to treasure hunters beginning April 1st, by reservation. Mr. Shaw was a very private individual and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to look into the life and times of an American icon. This estate is packed to the brim with intellectual interests and collections. His house provides a retrospective of the ultimate eclectic spectrum of interests from art and music to knives and novels.

Arriving at his residence, guests enter the living room bathed in light featuring the sound of jazz music by none other than Artie Shaw. The crown jewel of the estate is one of Artie’s beloved clarinets. The other three clarinets are part of the Smithsonian’s permanent collection of American music history. The room embodies his beloved grand piano with sheets of hand-composed music atop and his saxophone waiting its turn to serenade once again. From there treasure hunters travel to the wardrobe room elegantly presenting vintage clothing and classic tuxedos. Guests will enjoy a residence filled with fine art, chess sets, fly-fishing equipment, paperweights and masks from the many corners of the world.

On the top floor, Treasure Hunters can peruse through an expansive library including a large collection of reference works on a wide variety of subjects from anthology to Zen and Shaw’s signed semi-autobiographies. The house emits a pervasive mood from the Swing era through the 21st century. This house is rich with authentic pieces of American history waiting to touch people’s lives.

The estate will be accepting reservations for Friday, April 1st through Sunday, April 10th from 9a.m. to 4p.m. Pacific Time. Contact Treasures Estate Sales Monday through Friday via email, [email protected], for a life-changing journey through Shaw’s brilliant history.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
