      "Albert Omega Sears, who was born in Macomb, Illinois, on February 21st, 1910, had a remarkable career as a musician and businessman. While only in his mid-teens, he had a brief gig playing saxophone with Fats Waller in Harlem. Several years later, at the age of eighteen, he replaced Johnny Hodges in Chick Webb’s band and played in the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem. During that same year, 1928, he joined a road show entitled Keep Shufflin’, which was financed by Arnold Rothstein, a gangster who was reputed to have fixed the 1919 world series. Funding ran out while the show was in Chicago, but Sears soon found a job in 1929 with Zack Whyte’s Jazz Orchestra in Cincinnati.
      During the mid-1950s, Sears went on to play a role in the emergence of rock-and-roll. When Alan Freed, the famous deejay and promoter, started staging big rock and roll shows, he featured Sears several times. Popularly known as Big Al Sears, he led the band that Freed formed for those shows, and he teamed up with his friend Jesse Stone to write one of Alan Freed’s theme songs: “Right Now, Right Now.” Those were prosperous years for Sears, but he soon faded from view as a performer when Freed’s career went into a steep decline in 1957. Freed’s Big Beat TV show was cancelled–in part because he refused to stop using black performers. (The ABC network wanted only white acts for national broadcasts that included the segregated South.)
      Al Sears died in New York during 1990."
