Biographical Sketch

Sam Forman (1912-1987) was born in New York City, where he remained a lifelong resident. Music had been a part of his family for several generations. His father played both the violin and drums and had made his living accompanying silent films. His grandfather had been a musician in Russia, from whence the family emigrated in the early years of the 20th century.

In childhood Sam Forman began his musical training on the piano, at which he showed great promise, but his piano studies were cut short by a shooting accident that maimed his right hand. Unable to practice the piano thereafter, the drums became his instrument of choice, and he went on to study under Saul Goodman, who became a member of the New York Philharmonic in 1928.

From the late 1920s until his retirement in the late 1970s, Mr. Forman performed as a drummer with numerous prominent dance bands and orchestras, including the Lester Lanin Orchestra and Jeno Bartal and His Orchestra. He also served as music librarian for the Bartal Orchestra. During the World War II years Mr. Forman worked for several radio stations which maintained their own live house bands. He played on the Five Star Final which was broadcast 4
over WMCA (Manhattan) and also performed with Merle Pitt and his Five Shades of Blue, a jazz ensemble. He was also a relief drummer for the Palace Theater in New York City during the rebirth of vaudeville, as well as relief drummer at several upscale nightclubs, including the “Ruban Bleu” and the “Versailles”. Rather than seeking steady work in the nightclubs or in the pit bands of Broadway or vaudeville, Mr. Forman preferred the free-lance/club date environment, with the variety of venues and different circles of people and varied types of music that this offered.

Mr. Forman died in New York City and was survived by his wife, his three daughters, and his six grandchildren. Through his talent, industry, and hard work he had had the good fortune to fulfill his ambition of making his living solely by his greatest passion—music.

 

Provenance

The collection of materials now known as the Sam Forman Dance Orchestra Collection was originally owned by Jeno Bartal, a Hungarian-born cellist who settled in New York City. Although Bartal originally made a living performing classical music at receptions and in restaurants, he later formed an ensemble, Jeno Bartal and His Orchestra, and expanded into popular dance music. The group performed at weddings and other events of the city’s high-society set, held in such venues as the Waldorf and the Plaza Hotels.

When the Bartal ensemble disbanded, Bartal himself (who died ca. 1980) gave his extensive music collection to Sam Forman. Forman further distributed parts of the collection among other friends and colleagues, but kept several dozen items for himself. In 1987, the remainder of the collection passed to Forman’s widow after his death. Soon afterward, Mrs. Forman gave the collection to the couple’s grandson, Peter Silberman, In 1999, Mr. Silberman, at that time a Ph.D. candidate at the Eastman School of Music and now a professor of music at Ithaca College, donated the collection to the Sibley Music Library with the request that it be named the Sam Forman Dance Orchestra Collection in honor of his late grandfather.

RTWSC thanks Mrs. Irene Bernstein, aunt of the collection’s donor, for providing biographical information on the late Mr. Forman, and also information on the provenance of the collection (October, 2011).

Scope and Content

The Sam Forman Dance Orchestra Collection contains full and partial sets of performance parts for nearly 200 popular compositions published between1910 and 1960. The sets were used by Jeno Bartal and his orchestra during their New York City performances. Most of the imprints are French or Spanish in origin.

 

Associations

Elsewhere in the Ruth T. Watanabe Special Collections, the Carl Dengler Collection comprises the materials of Rochester bandleader Carl Dengler (1914-2006), whose career as an ensemble director was roughly contemporary with those of Jeno Bartal and Sam Forman.

 

Restrictions and Use

No restrictions have been placed on the use of the Sam Forman Dance Orchestra Collection, save for those applicable under the United States Copyright Law (1976) and its revisions.
